Kimberly-Clark has announced that it was once again named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere for the fourth consecutive year. This recognition honors the company’s exceptional leadership and commitment to business integrity through best-in-class ethics, compliance and governance practices.
“Kimberly-Clark has always been committed to doing business the right way,” said Mike Hsu, Chairman and CEO at Kimberly-Clark. “We’re honored to be recognized once again by Ethisphere. It’s a reflection of the deep commitment of our teams around the world to lead with integrity as we drive our value creation agenda for all our stakeholders.”
Grounded in Ethisphere’s proprietary Ethics Quotient, the World’s Most Ethical Companies assessment process includes more than 200 questions on culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity, and initiatives to support a strong value chain. The process serves as an operating framework to capture and codify the leading practices of organizations across industries and around the globe.
“Today, business leaders face their greatest mandate yet to be ethical, accountable and trusted to drive positive change,” said Timothy Erblich, CEO of Ethisphere. “We continue to be inspired by the World’s Most Ethical Companies honorees and their dedication to integrity, sustainability, governance and community. Congratulations to Kimberly-Clark for earning the World’s Most Ethical Companies designation.”
