How important is it to you to know that the products and services you pay for were resourced and produced by a company which behaves ethically?
Recent research shows that more and more this is making a difference, in particular for younger people.
So how can you find out if that is the case with your purchases?
One source of such information is the Ethisphere Institute that each year publishes a list of the World’s Most Ethical Companies.
The institute assesses performance across five categories. These are ethics and compliance; corporate citizenship and responsibility; culture of ethics, governance and leadership; innovation; and reputation.
We are among the companies to be included in Ethisphere Institute’s 2015 list of World’s Most Ethical Companies, and the only auto maker to make the list.
“This award celebrates doing business the right way, and making the right choices every day,” said Ford Motor Company Executive Chairman Bill Ford. “Ethics and corporate citizenship are important factors that affect a company’s reputation and success, and we are proud Ford is the only automaker to have received this honour for six consecutive years.”
