WSP’s outstanding commitment to achieving a best-in-class ethics and compliance program has earned the coveted Compliance Leader Verification for the second time, extending an earlier 2021-2022 verification. This recognition was granted by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.  


“Our review team is impressed and delighted that WSP has clearly demonstrated its continued commitments to a robust ethics and compliance program. WSP has shown that business integrity is a priority by building and maintaining a well-tailored compliance program structure, optimizing its risk management and audit processes, and engaging stakeholders throughout the enterprise to clearly and enthusiastically support its culture of ethics and integrity” said Neal Thurston, CCEP, CCEP-I, Director, Data and Services.” 

“We are honoured to accept the prestigious Compliance Leader Verification award. This recognition reaffirms WSP’s unwavering commitment to ethical conduct, strong governance, and compliance excellence. It is a testament to the collective effort of our teams who have championed a culture of integrity and upheld the highest standards of compliance. Ethical leadership and fostering trust among our stakeholders are both essential in today’s complex business landscape. We will continue to raise the bar, inspire others, and remain focused on forging a path to responsible and sustainable success”, said Alexandre L’Heureux, WSP’s President and CEO.  

“We are proud to receive this certification which is a testament to the robustness of our ethics and compliance program. We will continue to foster a culture of ethics and integrity and elevate the quality of our program to protect and uphold WSP’s reputation,” added Julianna Fox, WSP’s Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer. 

Ethisphere’s assessment process evaluated WSP’s corporate ethics and compliance program and initiatives, employee knowledge of compliance and the company’s culture of ethics, management’s perception of compliance and risk, and prioritized ethics and compliance risks specific to WSP Global. Ethisphere has developed the CLV criteria and methodology over several years with the input of many ethics, compliance, risk, sustainability, and legal experts who have assisted Ethisphere in defining best practices related to governance, culture, ethics and compliance programs, and corporate social responsibility.
