Seventh Straight Year
IRVING, Texas -- March 7, 2013
Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that it was named as one of the
Ethisphere Institute’s World’s Most Ethical (WME) Companies for 2013. This
year marks the seventh consecutive year that Fluor has been honored with the
WME distinction. The Ethisphere Institute, a leading international

whom embody Fluor’s values of integrity, safety, teamwork and excellence
regardless of their job assignment or work location.”
“Not only did more companies apply for the World's Most Ethical Companies
recognition this year than any year in the past, which demonstrates that
ethical activity is an important part of many of these companies' business
models, but we are also seeing more companies be proactive and create new
initiatives that expand ethics programs and cultures across entire industries,
such as industry-based ethics associations and other activities,” said Alex
Brigham, Executive Director of Ethisphere. “We are excited to see the 2013
World's Most Ethical Companies take these leadership positions, and embrace
the correlation between ethical behavior and improved financial performance.”
