For 10th Year, Starbucks Named One of the World’s Most Ethical Companies


For the 10th year in a row, Starbucks has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies.

The Ethisphere Institute evaluates companies based on these categories: Reputation, Leadership and Innovation; Ethics and Compliance Program; Governance; Corporate Citizenship and Responsibility; Culture of Ethics.

Only 131 companies were chosen from thousands of nominations worldwide, and Starbucks is one of only 14 companies to have earned the honor all 10 years that Ethisphere has published its rankings.

“While Our Mission and Values provide the guardrails by which we act, it is up to each of us to do our part to maintain a great work environment and to lead with ethics and integrity,” said Matthew Swaya, Starbucks senior vice president, deputy general counsel and chief ethics and compliance officer.
