I’m pleased to announce Applied Materials was once again named a World’s Most Ethical Company® by the Ethisphere Institute, a leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices. Applied was recognized for the fourth consecutive year for continuing to foster a culture of ethics and transparency at every level of the company.

“Applied Materials’ reputation as a trusted business partner is one of our most valuable assets,” said Chad Fentress, vice president, Global Ethics and Compliance at Applied Materials. “I am proud of our employees for doing business the right way, every day and I look forward to upholding our strong tradition of ethical conduct in the future.”

Now in its ninth year, Ethisphere’s annual award assesses company performance across ethics and compliance programs, corporate citizenship and responsibility, ethical culture, governance and leadership, innovation and reputation.

We sat down with our Global Ethics and Compliance team to remark on the occasion and hear their and Ethisphere’s perspective on the building blocks to creating an ethical culture and the importance of doing business responsibly.
