NextEra Energy Named as One of World’s most Ethical Companies
NEC Member NextEra Energy announced on February 12, 2018 that it has been recognized as one of the 2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.
Of this year’s 20 honorees, NextEra Energy is the only one to be named to this prestigious list 11times, and is one of only six in the energy and utilities sector making this year’s list. Following the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics Quotient framework, which offers a quantitative way to assess a company’s performance, scores are delegated in five categories: ethics and compliance; corporate citizenship and responsibility; culture of ethics; governance; and leadership, innovation, and reputation.
“We take enormous pride in being named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies once again…This honor is a reflection of our team’s dedication to our company values of being committed to excellence, doing the right thing and treating people with respect. Integrity is paramount in everything we do. As both America’s third-largest capital investor in infrastructure and the world’s largest generator of renewable energy from the wind and sun, our team is committed to delivering affordable, reliable and clean energy to our customers ethically and responsibly,” said Jim Robo, NextEra Energy chairman and CEO. This year, the Ethisphere Institute listed 135 honorees representing 23 countries and 57 industries.
