2009 World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere

99 companies made it into the "World's Most Ethical Companies" list (available in the website).

Some highlights of selected winners are available. It will be good if the questionaires used to evaluate the ethical quotient are available.

Its methodology:
Corporate citizenship and responsibility: 20%
Corporate governance: 10%
Innovation that contributes to public well being: 15%
Industry leadership: 5%
Executive leadership and tone from the top: 15%
Legal, regulatory and reputation track record: 20%
Internal systems and ethics/compliance program: 15%

Does it pay to be ethical ?
According to the graph (in the webstie) that compare "WME vs S&P" growth% over past 5 years, it is a strong YES.

There are other interesting lists and ratings in Ethisphere, for e.g:
100 Most Influential Peoples in Business Ethics;
50 Codes Rated
Global Anti-corruption Quotient 2009.

I place its blog into my "Investment bloglist". This blog will help in showing fraud prevention insights and ethical practices that will help in preserving investment value.
