ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--3M has been recognized for its ethics and integrity in doing business by
the Ethisphere Institute, which has placed the science-based company on
its list of World’s Most Ethical Companies for a fourth year in a row.
It is an honor that only four industrial manufacturing companies
worldwide can claim this year.
“At 3M, it’s not enough to just win in business – it matters how you do
it,” said Kristen Ludgate, 3M’s vice president of Associate General
Counsel and chief compliance officer. “Customers want to do business
with companies they can trust, and achieving that trust requires the
help of all employees. I’m proud to say our people live 3M’s Code of
Conduct every day by making ethical decisions and speaking up if they
aren’t sure what to do.”
3M’s Code of Conduct is central to its business playbook and a key
reason for the company’s high reputation among consumers and across many
industries. Seen as a competitive advantage, 3M leaders create and
promote a workplace environment where compliance and ethical business
conduct are expected and encouraged through a strong tone at the top and
leading by example.
The Ethisphere Institute assesses companies on a series of levels, from
compliance programs and corporate responsibility, to leadership and an
enterprise’s culture of ethics. 3M scored the highest in the citizenship
and corporate responsibility category, as well as the ethics and
compliance program grouping.
