Eastman Chemical Co. recently announced it has been recognized by the Ethisphere® Institute as a 2014 World’s Most Ethical Company® for its efforts to continually raise the bar on ethical leadership and corporate behavior.

“Eastman is dedicated to conducting all business activities in accordance with the highest legal and ethical standards,” said David Golden, senior vice president, chief legal officer, and corporate secretary. “For nearly 100 years, business ethics have been top priority for Eastman. Ethics are critical to success because they build trust and confidence in our employees, customers, suppliers, and communities in which we work and live. Receiving this prestigious recognition further reinforces the commitment to honesty, integrity and responsible corporate behavior inherent in the Eastman culture.”

Eastman has a number of policies and initiatives in place that reportedly allow its team members to cultivate a culture of the highest integrity and ethical standards. The company has an Office of Global Business Conduct, led by Eastman’s chief legal officer, which establishes the Code of Business Conduct. Globally, Eastman professionals are employed to support the company and its partners in doing business in the most ethical and compliant manner. The Code of Business Conduct outlines the laws, principles and guidelines all employees follow regarding honesty, integrity, and responsible corporate behavior.

World’s Most Ethical Company honorees reportedly understand the correlation between ethics, reputation and daily interactions with their brand and that the award belongs as much to their associates as it does to them. Eastman is one of only three companies in the global chemical industry honored this year.
