Alyeska named one of World’s Most Ethical Companies for sixth-straight year
ANCHORAGE, AK – Alyeska Pipeline Service Company is one of the World’s Most Ethical (WME) Companies® for the sixth year in a row. The Ethisphere® Institute announced its selection today and will honor recipients at the 2017 WME Honoree dinner tomorrow in New York.
“This year marks 40 years of operations on the Trans Alaska Pipeline System. As we celebrate our history, we appreciate how far we’ve come,” said Tom Barrett, Alyeska Pipeline Service Company President. “Earning this honor for the sixth consecutive year is a tribute to the people who operate TAPS and provide a foundation of operational and professional integrity and ethics that is part of our everyday culture. This ethical base makes us proud and resilient in the face of challenges and fortifies us for the future.”
For 11 years, Ethisphere has honored companies that recognize their role in society to influence and drive positive change, consider the impact of their actions on their employees, investors, customers and other key stakeholders and use their values and culture as an underpinning to the decisions they make every day. Companies are evaluated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program, corporate citizenship and responsibility, culture of ethics, governance, and leadership, innovation and reputation.
“Over the last eleven years we have seen the shift in societal expectations, constant redefinition of laws and regulations and the geo-political climate. We have also seen how companies honored as the World’s Most Ethical respond to these challenges. They invest in their local communities around the world, embrace strategies of diversity and inclusion, and focus on long term-ism as a sustainable business advantage,” explained Timothy Erblich, Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer. “Congratulations to everyone at Alyeska Pipeline Service Company for being recognized as a World's Most Ethical Company.”
