Swedish fashion label H&M has been recognised by the Ethisphere Institute as one of the world's most ethical companies for the sixth year.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of Ethisphere and the World's Most Ethical Companies designation. Apart from H&M, there was one other company in the apparel industry were honoured this year, H&M announced on its website.

“We are very proud that H&M is named as one of the world's most ethical companies. Being an honouree for the sixth time recognises our commitment to set ethical standards and practices in the fashion industry. We will continue our efforts to lead the fashion industry towards a more sustainable future where ethical and sustainable standrads is a prerequisite for success,” said Anna Gedda, Head of Sustainability at H&M.

"Companies rely on Ethisphere to continually raise and measure the standards of corporate behavior. 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," explained

Ethisphere's CEO, Timothy Erblich. "Congratulations to everyone at H&M for being recognized as a World's Most Ethical Company."

In 2016, 131 honourees were named spanning 21 countries and 5 continents and representing over 45 industries.

The World's Most Ethical Company assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute's Ethics Quotient (EQ) framework developed over years of research to provide a means to assess an organization's performance in an objective, consistent and standardized way. The information collected provides a comprehensive sampling of definitive criteria of core competencies, rather than all aspects of corporate governance, risk, sustainability, compliance and ethics.

The EQ framework and methodology is determined, vetted and refined by the expert advice and insights gleaned from Ethisphere's network of thought leaders and from the World's Most Ethical Company Methodology Advisory Panel.

Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance programme (35 per cent), corporate citizenship and responsibility (20 per cent), culture of ethics (20 per cent), governance (15 per cent) and leadership, innovation and reputation (10 per cent) and provided to all companies who participate in the process.
