Eaton Again Ranks Among World’s Most Ethical Companies

CLEVELAND — Power management company Eaton announced it has once again been recognized by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies in 2022. This recognition honors companies demonstrating exceptional leadership and a commitment to business integrity through best-in-class ethics, compliance, and government practices.

“Our commitment to doing business right is deeply rooted in our company’s history and is fundamental to our culture,” said Joe Rodgers, senior vice president, Ethics and Compliance. “’Doing business right’ means conducting ourselves with integrity in our interactions with each other, our customers, our suppliers, and the communities where we live and work. This honor reflects our ongoing commitment to our global ethics and compliance program, leading with our values, and our firmly held conviction that we all own ethics.”

Eaton has made the list 11 times since the Ethisphere Institute created the World’s Most Ethical Companies designation in 2007. This year, the company is one of only seven honorees in the Industrial Manufacturing category. In all, 136 honorees were recognized spanning 22 countries and 45 industries.

The assessment included more than 200 questions on culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity, and initiatives supporting a strong value chain. The process serves as an operating framework to capture and codify the leading practices of organizations across industries and around the globe.

“We are deeply committed to transparency and grateful for this recognition,” said Harold V. Jones, chief sustainability officer, Eaton. “Doing business right is not just about ethics, but governance too, and key to our sustainability program. This honor demonstrates that we are reporting our performance and results transparently.”

“Today, business leaders face their greatest mandate yet to be ethical, accountable, and trusted to drive positive change,” said Ethisphere CEO, Timothy Erblich. “We continue to be inspired by the World’s Most Ethical Companies honorees and their dedication to integrity, sustainability, governance, and community. Congratulations to Eaton for earning the World’s Most Ethical Companies designation.”
