CA Technologies Named as a 2017 World's Most Ethical Company
Recognition honors those companies who lead with integrity and align principle with action
March 13, 2017

CA Technologies has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, as a 2017 World’s Most Ethical Company.

For the second year in a row, CA Technologies has been recognized and is one of only 3 winners in the Software and Services category, underscoring the company’s commitment to leading ethical business standards and practices.

“Companies that want to succeed in the Application Economy – where the world becomes smaller and customers grow more savvy every day – must focus on operating their businesses with the highest ethical standards,” stated Mike Gregoire, CEO at CA Technologies. “We know that to effectively build long-term partnerships with our customers, a foundation of trust is fundamental. That requires an unwavering commitment to conducting ourselves with integrity in every aspect of our business. Without a strong ethical base, companies simply cannot last. We are proud of everything we do, but we are also proud that we do everything the right way.”

“CA is honored to once again be named one of the World's Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute," states Joel Katz, Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer, CA Technologies. “We believe that a strong ethical foundation within our company is the best way to help ensure sustainable business success. This recognition would not have been possible without the positive contributions to our ethical culture from our employees - all of whom should take pride in being included on this year's list."

2017 is the eleventh year that Ethisphere has honored those companies who recognize their role in society to influence and drive positive change, consider the impact of their actions on their employees, investors, customers and other key stakeholders and use their values and culture as an underpinning to the decisions they make every day.

“Over the last eleven years we have seen the shift in societal expectations, constant redefinition of laws and regulations and the geo-political climate. We have also seen how companies honored as the World’s Most Ethical respond to these challenges. They invest in their local communities around the world, embrace strategies of diversity and inclusion, and focus on long term-ism as a sustainable business advantage,” explained Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich. "Congratulations to everyone at CA Technologies for being recognized as a World's Most Ethical Company."

Methodology & Scoring: The World's Most Ethical Company 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 way. 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%), corporate citizenship and responsibility (20%), culture of ethics (20%), governance (15%) and leadership, innovation and reputation (10%) and provided to all companies who participate in the process.

The Ethisphere Institute is the global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices that fuel corporate character, marketplace trust and business success. Ethisphere has deep expertise in measuring and defining core ethics standards using data-driven insights that help companies enhance corporate character. Ethisphere honors superior achievement through its World’s Most Ethical Companies recognition program, provides a community of industry experts with the Business Ethics Leadership Alliance (BELA) and showcases trends and best practices in ethics with the publication of Ethisphere Magazine.
