The World's Most Ethical Company assessment is based upon the Ethisphere
Institute's Ethics Quotient™ framework. The Ethics Quotient framework has
been developed over years of effort to provide a means to assess an
organization's performance in an objective, consistent and standardized way.
The information collected provides a comprehensive sampling of definitive
criteria of core competencies, rather than all aspects of corporate
governance, risk, sustainability, compliance and ethics. The Ethics Quotient
framework and methodology was determined, vetted and refined by the expert
advice and insights gleaned from Ethisphere's network of thought leaders and
from the World's Most Ethical Company Methodology Advisory Panel.
Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program
(25%), reputation, leadership and innovation (20%), governance (10%),
corporate citizenship and responsibility (25%) and culture of ethics (20%).
