One of the world's most ethical
29 May 2013
SCA has been included in the list of the world's most ethical companies for a sixth consecutive year. 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.
The World's Most Ethical Companies list was first introduced in 2007 and SCA has appeared every year since 2008.
Only 23 companies 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,' says Jan Johansson, president and CEO of SCA. 'Our customers, employees and investors trust us because of the high level of transparency we demand at all levels of our business. '
