SCA has been included in the list of the world's most ethical companies for a sixth consecutive year. And in a second accolade, the company has also appeared in Fortune magazine's list of the most admired companies around the globe.
The 'world's most ethical companies' list recognises corporations that go beyond mere statements about ethical business practices and translate these into action. Typical WME honorees not only promote ethical business practices internally, they also exceed legal compliance minimums and shape future industry standards by introducing best practices.
Of the several thousand companies evaluated, only 145 featured in this year's list. SCA is one of only 43 winners based outside the US.
The world's most ethical companies list was first introduced in 2007 and SCA has appeared every year since 2008. Only 23 companies worldwide have made it to the list all seven years.
“SCA's focus on ethical business practices and strong environmental conduct is a competitive advantage and a true business differentiator that positively impact on the company's performance,” said Jan Johansson, president and CEO of SCA. “Our customers, consumers, employees and investors trust us because of the high level of transparency we demand at all levels of our business. We are honoured to be recognised by Ethisphere for the sixth time.”
Tork manufacturer SCA has also been included in Fortune magazine's list of the most admired companies. The magazine has conducted the 'world's most admired companies' survey in conjunction with the Hay Group since 1997 and considers a range of criteria including the ability to attract and retain talented people, quality of management and social responsibility.
