IBM is being recognised as one of the 2019 World’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute.

Ethisphere – a global organization devoted to defining and advancing ethical business practices – honors companies driving positive change in business and society. Companies recognized are role models in ethics and compliance, organizational culture, governance, corporate citizenship, and leadership and reputation.

“Responsibility has been a hallmark of IBM’s culture for 107 years – from our labs to our boardroom – and we’re honored to be recognized as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies,” said Ginni Rometty, IBM Chairman, President and CEO. “We know our clients and the consumers they serve expect more than groundbreaking innovation and expertise. They want to work with a partner they trust, and one that works to make the world better, safer and smarter. We are deeply committed to these values.”

Responsible stewardship of data and technology, the future of jobs and skills, and leading the way on diversity and inclusion are hallmarks of IBM’s ethical commitments. Last year –as trust in technology came under heightened global scrutiny – IBM published its Principles for Trust and Transparency, which have long guided the company. They stress the belief that the purpose of new technologies is to augment – not replace – human intelligence, and that data and the insights derived from technology belong to the businesses who own them. The Principles also emphasize that new technologies brought into the world must be open, transparent, explainable and free of bias.

The definition of an ethical company can come from many different perspectives, but at the heart of a sustainable, ethical position is the value, trust and authentic communications across all stakeholders.
