Kennametal Inc. has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for the second straight year, while General Electric earns the distinction of making the list all 6 years since The Ethisphere Institute started it back in 2007. Kennametal Stellite Inc. and GE Energy-Flow and Process Technologies are members of VMA.
This year 145 companies made the cut, a new record, 43 of which are American. The World's Most Ethical (WME) Companies designation recognizes companies that truly go beyond making statements about doing business "ethically" and translate those words into action. WME 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.
