​​​​​​​Ethisphere Institute recognition honors companies who lead with integrity and align principle with action

Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated (NYSE: JLL) has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute as a 2017 World's Most Ethical Company®. The honor acknowledges, for the 10th consecutive year, the strong principles of business and professional ethics that are inherent in JLL's values, culture and strategy as well as its interactions with clients, customers, vendors and employees. The Ethisphere Institute is a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.

"JLL places the highest priority on ethical integrity in all we do," said Christian Ulbrich, JLL CEO. "Working with our clients around the world, we are dedicated to the goal of building a better tomorrow. We are proud and honored to be acknowledged for a 10th consecutive year on the Ethisphere Institute's list of the World's Most Ethical Companies."

"We have a responsibility to our employees, shareholders, clients and the communities in which we operate to maintain the reputation for the highest ethical standards that has been the foundation for our 250-year history."

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.
