Any company, public or private, for-profit or not-for-profit, U.S. or foreign based, is eligible to participate in the process and be considered for designation as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies. That said, the Ethics Quotient questionnaire and peer group is generally designed for those companies with over $250 million in revenue. This does not mean that smaller companies cannot benefit from the process or be designated as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies, but rather that our process is not suitable for many smaller companies unless they have the type of programs in place typically seen at larger companies. Please note that while our process has broad eligibility requirements, non-profit colleges and universities, governments, governmental agencies, government majority owned companies, and NGOs are not eligible. If you have a question regarding eligibility please contact Ethisphere at [email protected].
