WME rankings for seven years. The "World's Most Ethical Company" designation
is awarded to those companies that have leading ethics and compliance
programs, particularly as compared to their peers.

The group reviewed hundreds of companies from 36 industries and evaluated a
record number of applications using in-depth research and a multi-step
analysis to develop this year's list. The 2013 ranking is the largest list
since the award's inception in 2007.
