For the fourth straight year, FPL Group Inc. – one of the largest wind developers in the U.S. – has been named one of the World's Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute. According to Ethisphere, this year's list recognizes winning companies' ‘outstanding commitment to ethical leadership, compliance practices and corporate social responsibility.’
‘FPL Group's promotion of a sound ethical environment shines within its industry and shows a clear understanding that operating under the highest standards for business behavior goes beyond goodwill and 'lip-service,' and is intimately linked to performance and profitability,’ says Alex Brigham, executive director of the Ethisphere Institute.
Ethisphere reviewed thousands of nominations from companies in more than 100 countries and dozens of industries to determine the winners. Of the 100 firms named to the World's Most Ethical Companies list this year, only four were from the U.S. energy and utility sector. In addition, FPL Group is one of 36 companies worldwide to receive the Ethisphere honor all four years.
The Ethisphere Institute is a think-tank dedicated to the creation, advancement and sharing of best practices in business ethics, corporate social responsibility, anti-corruption and sustainability. Other 2010 winners include American Express, General Electric, Google, Nike, Starbucks, UPS, Whole Foods Market and Xerox.
