March 14, 2017 – Congrats to the 124 company names topping the list for 2017 World’s Most Ethical Companies, as compiled by the Ethisphere Institute!

3M, Schneider Electric, Rockwell Automation, The Timken Company, The AES Corp., TE Connectivity, ON Semiconductor, MSA – The Safety Company, GE, Texas Instruments and others were among those honoured.

Since 2007, the Ethisphere Institute publicly honours companies that have “demonstrated ethical leadership in their industries, using ethical conduct as a profit driver and a competitive differentiator” through its World’s Most Ethical Company list. This year, these companies represent 52 industry sectors headquartered in 19 countries.

This is the seventh consecutive year that Schneider Electric has received this accolade and is one of the only two companies honoured in the “Diversified machinery” category.


“We are particularly proud of being honoured for the seventh year by Ethisphere Institute, and moreover to be among the only two companies recognized in our category,” said Emmanuel Babeau, deputy CEO in charge of Finance & Legal Affairs and chair of the Ethics & Responsibility Committee at Schneider Electric. “It proves that Schneider Electric considers very thoroughly ethical challenges and address them with impact and efficiency, in line with our corporate values.”
