Applied Materials was named a 2014 World’s Most Ethical Company® by the Ethisphere Institute, a leading independent center of research promoting best practices in corporate ethics and governance. Now in its eighth year, Ethisphere’s annual award recognized Applied for continuing to demonstrate ethical leadership and corporate behavior.
“Ethical business practices are foundational to Applied Materials’ success,” said Tom Larkins, senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary at Applied Materials. “We recognize that ethics are a shared responsibility and would like to thank our employees for their continued commitment.”
This marks the third consecutive year Applied has been recognized by Ethisphere, reflecting our commitment to creating value for customers, employees and shareholders by doing the right thing each and every day.
“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.
Sean Coutain, an Ethics and Compliance Attorney in the Office of the Ombudsman, recently shared his thoughts on the importance of executing ethical business practices each and every day.
