In 2021, 135 honorees in total were recognized spanning 22 countries and 47 industries.
“As a values-based global organization of 270,000 team members in nearly 50 countries, we believe that it is our duty to apply technology for the good of society and the planet in an ethical, inclusive and responsible manner,” comments Aiman Ezzat, CEO of the Capgemini Group. “This Ethisphere recognition, for a 9th year running, acknowledges Capgemini as a benchmark organization for the exemplary ethical mindset and behaviors that are embedded in our practices every day. These have been more important and evident than ever during this last exceptional year.”
Philippe Christelle, Chief Ethics and Internal Audit Officer at the Capgemini Group said: “Capgemini is honored to once again be recognized for the high ethical practices that are so integral to our corporate culture. Receiving this accolade for a 9th time highlights our longstanding achievement in putting our values into action. Guided by our core values, we will continue to forge sustainable business relationships, in order to lead the way into an ethical future.”
Capgemini’s 7 core values are at the heart of its culture, uniting its multicultural teams, who are decentralized across nearly 50 countries. Its values also inspire its extremely high expectations of behavior in all business dealings, underpinning its approach as an ethical business.
“While addressing the tough challenges of 2020, we saw companies lead – above all other institutions – on earning the trust of stakeholders through resilience and a commitment to ethics and integrity,” said Ethisphere CEO, Timothy Erblich. “As an honoree for a 9th consecutive year, Capgemini has continued to demonstrate an unwavering commitment to the highest values and positively impacting the communities it serves.
