The Ethics Premium
At Ethisphere, we know that doing the right thing is not always the road most easily traveled. That’s why we honor those companies that do it. It takes grit to enact policies that are forward-thinking rather than focused on short-term gains. It takes fortitude to make the right decision even when the ethical call can hurt the bottom line and it takes foresight to understand the difference and appreciate the long-term value. But the research is in. As we compare the 2017 World’s Most Ethical Companies honorees to the S&P 500 over the last 2 years, the gap (6.4% to the positive) is palpable – we call it the Ethics Premium.
