Capgemini named a 2017 World’s Most Ethical Company® by the Ethisphere Institute for the 5th consecutive year
Capgemini has achieved this global recognition consecutively for the last five years––one of only two in the consulting industry to do so, underscoring its commitment to maintaining high standards of ethics and corporate integrity across the Group and throughout its global business practices.
Nicolas Aidoud, Capgemini CEO ANZ said: “It's fantastic to be acknowledged as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies, and for the fifth year running. In Australia and New Zealand, our culture is what sets us apart for our employees to clients and the community, and as we enter into our 50th Anniversary year as a company this is an important recognition of our strong and sustainable ethical values. Having travelled from Capgemini France to Capgemini Australia in the last year, I was delighted to see this is a culture that is inherit across the globe, throughout the Group."
Timothy Erblich, Chief Executive Officer at Ethisphere said: “It is our mission to define and advance the standards of ethical business practices that fuel corporate character, marketplace trust and business success. The World’s Most Ethical Companies recognition is first and foremost a measurement exercise with the honour being reserved for those who excel. We would like to congratulate Capgemini for consecutively maintaining its position as a World’s Most Ethical Company for the last five years. It has set a high benchmark for the industry, by evolving with the changing business environment while remaining steadfast in its commitment to corporate ethics and compliance.”
This is the eleventh year that Ethisphere has honoured those companies who recognise their role in society to influence and drive positive change, consider the impact of their actions on their employees, investors, customers and other key stakeholders, and use their values and culture as an underpinning to the decisions they make every day.
Methodology & Scoring The World's Most Ethical Company assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics Quotient® (EQ) framework which offers a quantitative way to assess a company’s performance in an objective, consistent and standardised 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.
Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program (35%), corporate citizenship and responsibility (20%), culture of ethics (20%), governance (15%) and leadership, innovation and reputation (10%) and provided to all companies who participate in the process.
