The honor acknowledges, for the 11th consecutive year, the strong principles of business and professional ethics inherent in JLL’s values, culture and strategy as well as its interactions with clients, customers, vendors and employees. The Ethisphere Institute is a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.

“Our values of teamwork, ethics and excellence are central to everything we do at JLL,” said JLL CEO Christian Ulbrich. “Working with our clients around the world, we have a responsibility to play our full part in building a better tomorrow. We are proud and honored to be included for the 11th consecutive year on the Ethisphere Institute’s list of the World’s Most Ethical Companies.”

JLL General Counsel and Chief Ethics Officer Mark J. Ohringer added, “Our reputation for integrity is a significant point of pride within our firm. It was the foundation of JLL 250 years ago and will continue to be a differentiator for us.”

Ethisphere CEO Timothy Erblich said, “While the discourse around the world changed profoundly in 2017, a stronger voice emerged. Global corporations operating with a common rule of law are now society’s strongest force to improve the human condition. This year we saw companies increasingly finding their voice. The World’s Most Ethical Companies in particular continued to show exemplary leadership. I congratulate everyone at JLL for being recognized as one of the World's Most Ethical Companies."

Clients and third-party organizations continue to recognize JLL globally for its ethics, corporate citizenship and commitment to being an employer of choice. JLL has collected the following U.S. and global awards in the last year:

  • Dow Jones Sustainability Index, North America, second year in a row
  • LinkedIn Top Companies, second year in a row
  • Working Mother 100 Best Companies
  • Perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Corporate Equality Index, fourth year in a row
  • 2018 Military Friendly® Employer, Victory Media

 Ethics Drives Performance

Once again, the 2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies have proven that operating with integrity leads to greater financial performance. Research has found that, when indexed, listed World’s Most Ethical Companies outperformed the U.S. Large Cap Index over five years by 10.72 percent and over three years by 4.88 percent. Ethisphere refers to this as the Ethics Premium.

Methodology & Scoring

The World's Most Ethical Companies assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics Quotient(EQ) framework, which offers a quantitative way to assess a company’s performance in an objective, consistent and standardized 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.

Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program (35 percent), corporate citizenship and responsibility (20 percent), culture of ethics (20 percent), governance (15 percent) and leadership, innovation and reputation (10 percent). All companies that participate in the assessment process receive their scores, providing them with valuable insights into how they stack up against leading organizations.
