    Microsoft on The World’s Most Ethical Companies list 5 years in a row

    Trust is paramount to the success of any business. At Microsoft, we work hard to build and maintain trust through a shared commitment to ethical and transparent business practices.

    Our commitments to ethical business practices and strong corporate governance policies are designed to promote the long-term interests of our shareholders, maintain internal checks and balances, promote accountability at all levels of our organization, and foster responsible decision making. We are proud that because of our commitments and actions, we are included in the 2015 list of The World’s Most Ethical Companies® which was announced today by the Ethisphere Institute.

    We are highly appreciative of this honor. Our customers and society expect us to maximize the value of technology while preserving values that are timeless. We recognize there is more work to be done and we commit ourselves to ongoing improvement as we help others do more and achieve more.

    The latest list includes 132 companies representing more than 50 industries spanning 21 countries and five continents. We would like to congratulate each of them.

    World’s Most Ethical Companies – Honorees

    The World’s Most Ethical Companies® designation recognizes companies that truly go beyond making statements about doing business “ethically” and translate those words into action. Honorees not only promote ethical business standards and practices internally, they exceed legal compliance minimums and shape future industry standards by introducing best practices today.

    Sooo, basically you can't go too wrong using a Dell PC, with Hitachi Harddrives, running Windows, with MS Office and Photoshop installed and using Google search. Oddly enough I'm not too far off that...

    Surprising to see Google on that list after having been in and out of court for years over mass harvesting and misappropriation of personal data!

    I think that Microsoft is an ethical company, personally I have nothing to complain. However, the list itself and institution behind it is clearly just a business with no factual value; if a company like Adobe is on the list, the list can't be taken seriously. Adobe is not ethical, a company who tries everything they can to feed third party software to anyone downloading and installing their products like for instance the McAfee and Chrome / Chrome Toolbar which are offered and by default selected when downloading Flash Player or Adobe Reader and which many consumers do not notice therefore installing them, too.

    I'm surprised google is on that list. Their literal policy is to get up to the line of creepy and not cross it.

    Nice to see Dell at the top of the hardware list. In another thread I have just praised them for first class computer hardware.

    It does look, on the surface, that the survey was biased toward US companies. Maybe the organisation should get out more.

    As a Brit, I have to comment. Shame on the British companies for not getting a few more on the top list.

    I don't trust any of them, what is there to trust, their underlying goal is to make money.
