Thomson Reuters one of 'world's most ethical companies'
Wednesday 6 March 2013
Thomson Reuters has been named one of the world's most ethical companies. It is the sixth time, and the fifth year in a row, that the company has been honoured for promoting the highest ethical standards.
The list of 145 ethical companies was composed by the Ethisphere Institute, a New York business ethics think tank that reviewed nominations from firms in more than 100 countries and 36 industries. The review covers codes of ethics, litigation and regulatory infraction industries; evaluating the investment in innovation and sustainable business practices; looking at activities designed to improve corporate citizenship; and studying nominations from senior executives, industry peers, suppliers and customers.
Thomson Reuters said that, out of a record number of nominations for the award, it secured a position on the list by implementing and maintaining upright business practices and initiatives that are instrumental to the company’s success, benefit the community and raise the bar for ethical standards within the industry.
“Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and the Trust Principles are a part of how we do business at Thomson Reuters”, said Deirdre Stanley, executive vice president and general counsel at Thomson Reuters. “Everyone acting on Thomson Reuters behalf has a responsibility to uphold the standard of ethics inherent in our policies through their daily work. We are honored to receive this recognition.” ■
