AECOM, one of the world’s most trusted infrastructure consulting firms, is recognized by Ethisphere as one of the 2024 World’s Most Ethical Companies. This marks the eighth year AECOM has received this recognition, which honors AECOM’s commitment to prioritizing ethics and integrity. A global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, Ethisphere has recognized 136 honorees spanning 20 countries and 44 industries on its 2024 World’s Most Ethical Companies list.

“We are honored to once again be recognized as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies, which reflects the strength of our industry leadership position and unwavering commitment to integrity, ethics and compliance across all aspects of our business,” said Troy Rudd, AECOM’s chief executive officer. “This distinction is a testament to our purpose-driven culture and our outstanding teams around the world who deliver excellence to our clients and the communities we serve.”

“It’s always inspiring to recognize the World’s Most Ethical Companies®. Through the rigorous review process, we see the dedication of these organizations to continually improving their ethics, compliance, and governance practices to the benefit of all stakeholders,” said Erica Salmon Byrne, Ethisphere’s Chief Strategy Officer and Executive Chair. “Companies that elevate best-in-class cultures of ethics and integrity set a standard for corporate citizenship for their peers and competitors to follow. Congratulations to AECOM for achieving this honor and demonstrating that strong ethics is good business.”

AECOM upholds a robust Ethics & Compliance program. In 2023, AECOM’s 50,000 global employees achieved 100 percent compliance with its annual Code of Conduct training. AECOM's Culture of Caring and Safety for Life program proactively and aggressively identifies, manages and seeks to eliminate hazards. This exceptional culture is rooted in its focus on the well-being of and respect for its employees and families as well as its clients, partners and communities.

“A dedicated focus on ethics is fundamental to our business, as our people, clients, and communities trust us to operate at the highest standards of integrity and ethical behavior in all we do,” said David Gan, AECOM’s chief legal officer. “I’m proud AECOM has achieved this important recognition for an eighth year as a result of our robust Ethics & Compliance program, which underscores our commitment to making a positive and lasting impact through ethical leadership across our teams.”

Grounded in Ethisphere’s proprietary Ethics Quotient®, the World’s Most Ethical Companies assessment process includes more than 200 questions on culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity, and initiatives that support a strong value chain. The process serves as an operating framework to capture and codify the leading practices of organizations across industries and around the globe.
