Arizona-based organization Ethisphere Institute has selected Dun & Bradstreet as one of the 135 most ethical companies around the world in 2018. D&B said March 1 this is its 10th consecutive year in the 2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies list.
Louis Sapirman, chief compliance officer of Dun & Bradstreet, stated that the company recognizes its responsibility to continue doing what is right as part of the foundation for its activities. Ethisphere Institute used its Ethics Quotient framework to identify the most ethical companies based on their ethics and compliance program, corporate citizenship and responsibility, culture of ethics, governance as well as leadership, innovation and reputation.
D&B said the organization has also found that listed companies outperformed the U.S. Large Cap Index over five years by nearly 11 percent and over three years by almost 5 percent. Other companies in Ethisphere Institute’s lineup of ethical companies in 2018 include CA Technologies and Leidos.
