SHORT HILLS, NJ – February 27, 2019– Dun & Bradstreet, the global leader in commercial data, analytics and insights for businesses, has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, as one of the 2019 World’s Most Ethical Companies.
Dun & Bradstreet has been recognized for the last 11 years in the business services industry.
In 2019, 128 honorees were recognized spanning 21 countries and 50 industries. The thirteenth class of honorees profoundly illustrate how companies continue to be the driving force for improving communities, building capable and empowered workforces, and fostering corporate cultures focused on ethics and a strong sense of purpose.
“Now more than ever, companies want to do business with organizations that mirror their own values and have a strong culture of doing the right thing,” said Dun & Bradstreet’s Chief Executive Officer, Anthony Jabbour. “I’m proud of the strong record Dun & Bradstreet has achieved, and we look forward to continuing our efforts to ensure highest ethical standards in business.”
“Today, employees, investors and stakeholders are putting their greatest trust in companies to take leadership on societal issues. Companies that take the long view with a purpose-based strategy are proven to not only outperform but last,” said Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich. “I congratulate everyone at Dun & Bradstreet for earning this recognition.”
Methodology & Scoring
The World's Most Ethical Companies 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 standardized manner. 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 percent), culture of ethics (20 percent), corporate citizenship and responsibility (20 percent), governance (15 percent) and leadership and reputation (10 percent). All companies that participate in the assessment process receive their scores, providing them with valuable insights into how they stack up against leading organizations.
