The World’s Most Ethical Companies Evaluation Framework

At the heart of the evaluation and selection process for the World’s Most Ethical Companies is Ethisphere’s proprietary rating system, the corporate Ethics Quotient (EQ). The EQ framework features more than 200 multiple-choice and text questions that capture a company’s performance in an objective, consistent, and standardized way.

All applicants will receive their overall EQ score and scores in all five categories as compared against the 2022 honorees.
