Ford is dedicated to taking responsibility for its practices and has consistently been named one of the world’s most ethical companies. This year marks the eighth in a row that the Ethisphere Institute has named Ford to the list. The Ethisphere Institute focuses on company involvement in sustainability and outside initiatives.
The top honor puts a focus on Ford’s good corporate citizenship. Factors for the American automaker’s placement include supply chain sustainability and progressive initiatives, like the Partnership for a Cleaner Environment.
“Strong ethics and corporate citizenship are the foundation of our business philosophy, which demonstrates to our customers what we stand for as a company,” said Bill Ford, Ford Motor Company Executive Chairman.
Ford aims to maintain long-term relationships with suppliers by actively engaging with them to meet the company’s standards. The automaker is also active in safe working conditions, monitoring human rights, and various other initiatives.
The World’s Most Ethical Companies is just the most recent prestigious list that Ford landed on. Newsweek named the automaker the Top Green Company in 2016. Forbes named Ford America’s best Employer in 2016 as well. That’s just the tip of the iceberg!
