I am happy to share that that the Ethisphere Institute has once again named Starbucks one of the World's Most Ethical Companies—that’s four years in a row!
This recognition is a direct result of the great work being done by so many partners (employees) around the world who make this company stand out.
The Ethisphere Institute considers several factors before deciding the recipient of this competitive award. This includes what companies do to contribute to the well being of their employees and their communities, their record of environmental stewardship, efforts at sustainable and ethical sourcing, strong leadership and other dimensions of a company’s reputation for acting ethically.
I have to say that after 16 years, I am still proud to be part of a company where doing the right thing is just part of how we work.
