MISSISSAUGA, ON, March 26, 2014 /CNW/ - Express Scripts has been recognized as 
a 2014 World's Most Ethical Company® by the Ethisphere Institute, an 
independent centre of research promoting best practices in corporate ethics 
and governance. 
"Millions of Canadians trust Express Scripts Canada to manage their 
prescription drug benefit, and we work to earn that trust with a steadfast 
commitment to ethical behaviour, good governance and topnotch service to 
clients and patients," said Michael Biskey, President, Express Scripts Canada. 
"While we are very proud to be honored by Ethisphere, we are even prouder of 
the work we do every day to promote better health decisions for patients, 
while managing the costs for patients and clients." 
The award recognizes organizations that continue to raise the bar on ethical 
leadership and corporate behaviour. World's Most Ethical Company honorees 
understand the correlation between ethics, reputation and daily interactions 
with their brand. Express Scripts is one of only eight companies in the 
healthcare services industry and the only pharmacy benefit manager to be 
honored this year. 
"The entire community of World's Most Ethical Companies believe that 
customers, employees, investors and regulators place a high premium on trust 
and that ethics and good governance are key in earning it," said Ethisphere's 
Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich. "Express Scripts joins an exclusive 
community committed to driving performance through leading business practices. 
We congratulate everyone at Express Scripts for this extraordinary 
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%).
