Waste Management, Inc., the leading provider of comprehensive environmental solutions in North America has been recognized as a 2014 World’s Most Ethical Company by Ethisphere Institute. The award, which highlights companies that raise the bar on ethical leadership and corporate behavior, is based on five categories – ethics and compliance program (25%), reputation, leadership and innovation (20%), governance (10%), corporate citizenship and responsibility (25%) and culture of ethics (20%). Only two environmental service companies received this honor, and in a truly impressive note, this is the 7th time that Waste Management has taken home this hardware.
Upon receiving the award, CEO and President of Waste Management David Steiner said “This recognition reflects our most fundamental commitment to keeping the environment–and our people and our neighbors—safe. As an industry leader, we continue to develop strategies to extract value from waste stream to minimize our environmental impact, while at the same time demonstrating a culture where safety and ethics are core beliefs.”
We at the NAM tip our caps to the outstanding leadership of Waste Management and the impressive and committed men and women who work there.
