|Waste Management Named as a 2017 World's Most Ethical Company by the Ethisphere Institute for the Tenth Time|
This year marks Waste Management’s tenth year to be recognized, underscoring the Company’s ongoing commitment to leading ethical business standards and practices.
“It is truly an honor for us to be recognized for our very real
commitment to integrity and doing what is right, both of which are
foundational aspects of everything we do, every day,” said
2017 is the eleventh year that Ethisphere has honored those companies who recognize their role in society to influence and drive positive change, consider the impact of their actions on their employees, investors, customers and other key stakeholders and use their values and culture as an underpinning to the decisions they make every day.
“Over the last eleven years we have seen the shift in societal
expectations, constant redefinition of laws and regulations and the
geo-political climate. We have also seen how companies honored as the
World’s Most Ethical respond to these challenges. They invest in their
local communities around the world, embrace strategies of diversity and
inclusion, and focus on long term-ism as a sustainable business
advantage,” explained Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer,
