This time, the World´s Most Ethical Companies index is formed by 128 companies from 21 countries and 50 different sectors. For their selection, Ethisphere Institute evaluates candidates in five categories: compliance and ethics programme (35%), ethics culture (20%), corporate social responsibility (20%), good governance (15%) and reputation and leadership (10%).
