Paris – Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, today announced that it has been recognised by the Ethisphere Institute, an independent centre of research promoting best practices in corporate ethics and governance, as a 2015 World’s Most Ethical Company®.
Capgemini has been honoured for the third year in a row as one of the most ethical organisations globally, recognising its longstanding commitment to companywide ethical leadership, compliance practices, and corporate social responsibility. Through its World’s Most Ethical Company scheme, the Ethisphere Institute acknowledges those organisations that have had a material impact on the way business is conducted by fostering a culture of ethics and transparency at every level of the company.
This high profile industry accolade highlights Capgemini’s commitment to leading ethical business standards and practices ensuring long-term value to key stakeholders around the world including customers, employees, suppliers, regulators and investors. Capgemini is one of only two companies in the ‘consulting services’ industry honoured this year.
Hervé Canneva, Ethics and Compliance Officer at Capgemini said: “This prestigious recognition by the Ethisphere Institute acknowledges Capgemini’s core values of maintaining a high standard of corporate ethics and compliance. We are proud to be honoured as a World’s Most Ethical Company for 2015 and will continue to ensure that the culture of ethics is at the heart of our organisation.”
“The World’s Most Ethical Company program embraces the correlation between ethical business practice and improved company performance. These companies use ethics as a means to further define their industry leadership and understand that creating an ethical culture and earning the World’s Most Ethical Company recognition involves more than just an outward facing message or a handful of senior executives saying the right thing,” said Timothy Erblich, Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer.. “Earning this recognition involves the collective action of a global workforce from the top down. We congratulate everyone at Capgemini for this extraordinary achievement.”
The World’s Most Ethical Company assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics Quotient™ (EQ) framework developed over years of research to provide a means to assess an organisation’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. The EQ framework and methodology is determined, vetted and refined by the expert advice and insights gleaned from Ethisphere’s network of thought leaders and from the World’s Most Ethical Company Methodology Advisory Panel.
Company 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%).
