Great news to share! For the sixth year in a row, Starbucks has been named one of the “World's Most Ethical Companies” by the Ethisphere Institute. We’re among 145 companies chosen from more than 5,000 applicants world-wide, and we’re the only winner in the Restaurants and Cafes category.
This recognition is a testament to the great work being done by our partners (employees) around the world who make this company stand out as an industry leader in ethics and corporate citizenship.
The award is highly competitive, and recognizes companies for going the extra mile, implementing upright business practices and initiatives that are not only instrumental to the company’s success, but benefit the community, and raise the bar for ethical standards within the industry as a whole.
We’re honored to share this recognition with 144 other companies doing good, and after 15 years with Starbucks, I am prouder than ever to be part of a company where doing the right thing is simply how we do business.
