CBRE Recognised for Corporate Ethics and Sustainability Focus

The CBRE Group, Inc. has been named as one of World’s most ethical companies for 2014 by The Ethisphere Institute an independent centre of research promoting best practices in corporate ethics and governance.

CBRE was honoured with this award in recognition of its strong corporate culture focused on commitments to ethical leadership and corporate behaviour. World’s Most Ethical Company honourees understand the correlation between ethics, reputation and daily interactions with their brand. The award belongs as much to their employees as it does to the companies that receive it.

“CBRE places a high value on ethical behaviour and being named as a World’s Most Ethical Company is a testament to the solid foundation we have in place,” said Bob Sulentic, President and Chief Executive Officer of CBRE. “The award not only acknowledges our ethics and compliance programme but also highlights the efforts of our employees to serve the communities where they live and work, our company’s commitment to giving to those in need, our approach to sustainability and our culture of integrity.”

 

Ethics Quotient

The World's Most Ethical Company assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics Quotient framework. The Ethics Quotient framework has been developed over years of effort to provide a means to assess an organisation’s performance in an objective, consistent and standardised manner. 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 Ethics Quotient framework and methodology was determined, vetted and refined by the expert advice and insights gleaned from Ethisphere’s network of leaders from the World’s Most Ethical Company Methodology Advisory Panel.

Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program (25%); reputation, leadership and innovation (20%); governance (10%); corporate citizenship and responsibility (25%); and culture of ethics (20%).

“The entire community of World’s Most Ethical Companies believe that customers, employees, investors and regulators place a high premium on trust and that ethics and good governance are key in earning it,” said Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich. “CBRE joins an exclusive community committed to driving performance through leading business practices. We congratulate everyone at CBRE for this extraordinary achievement.”
