National Grid recognized as one of world’s most ethical companies again

tick-800x800We have been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute as a 2016 World’s Most Ethical Company®.

This is the sixth time that we’ve been honored with this award, which means that we’re seen to have a best practice ethics and compliance program. It also shows that we understand the connection between ethics, reputation and daily interactions with our brand.

Commenting on the award, Cheryl Young, VP Group Assurance, said: “This distinction once again shows that we have made great strides in building ethics into our corporate culture. Every year the bar gets raised and we continue to drive our program towards best in class. With strong leadership, we have been able to embed ethics into the fabric of everything we do.“

Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer Timothy Erblich said: “Companies rely on Ethisphere to continually raise and measure the standards of corporate behaviour. Those that demonstrate leadership in areas like citizenship, integrity and transparency create more value for their investors, communities, customers and employees, thus solidifying a sustainable business advantage. Congratulations to everyone at National Grid for being recognized as a World’s Most Ethical Company.”

Our ethics and compliance work is supported by a network of ethics champions / liaisons across our functions in the UK and US, as well as our Always Doing the Right Thing guide to ethical business conduct. We couldn’t have received this accolade without the hard work of our ethics liaisons in the US and ethics champions in the UK, or without the support of all our colleagues across the business. Thank you!

The awards in numbers: 130 companies honored, 54 industry sectors, 21 countries, 5 continents.
