Starbucks one of only 14 companies making the World’s Most Ethical Companies list for 10 years in a row

SEATTLE, 2016-Mar-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — For the 10th year in a row, Starbucks has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies.

The Ethisphere Institute evaluates companies based on these categories: Reputation, Leadership and Innovation; Ethics and Compliance Program; Governance; Corporate Citizenship and Responsibility; Culture of Ethics.

“Transparency and sustainability are no longer mere buzzwords for corporations,” said Sherry Barrat, Ethisphere board member. “Companies that understand that corporate integrity is a key driver and provides a performance advantage are those that will continually lead their industries and be considered both trustworthy and successful.”

Only 130 companies were chosen from thousands of nominations worldwide, and Starbucks is one of only 14 companies to have earned the honor all 10 years that Ethisphere has published its rankings.

“While Our Mission and Values provide the guardrails by which we act, it is up to each of us to do our part to maintain a great work environment and to lead with ethics and integrity,” said Matthew Swaya, Starbucks senior vice president, deputy general counsel and chief ethics and compliance officer.
