Aflac named to "World's Most Ethical Companies" list

For the third year in a row, The Ethisphere Institute, an international think-tank focused on business ethics, has named Aflac to its annual list of the world’s most ethical companies.

“Aflac has proven to be one of the world leaders in upholding high ethical standards, making it a true standout in its industry, especially as unethical business actions and decision grab headlines each day,” Alex Brigham, executive director of the institute, said in a statement.

The list recognizes organizations that promote ethical business standards and practices. The Ethisphere Institute reviewed more than 10,000 companies to determine the list’s finalists.
