Thirteen Year Kao Named
World's Most Ethical Companies
Once again, the Ethisphere Institute has named Kao to its annual list of the world's most ethical companies. Kao has been chosen every year since the Institute began compiling its list in 2007, making Kao a recipient of this recognition thirteen years in a row, the only Japanese company with this honor.
"We are honored to be recognized as one of the World's Most Ethical Companies for thirteen consecutive years," comments Michitaka Sawada, President and CEO of Kao Corporation. "Our culture of Integrity has remained the same since Kao began business 130 years ago. We live in times where great volatility and change are the norm and so the demand for leadership in compliance and ethical business is greater than ever before. Integrity will continue to be the cornerstone of our company's existence."
