LOMBARD – Waste Management Inc., whose divisions operate throughout Illinois and northwest Indiana, has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute as one of its 2013 World’s Most Ethical Companies.

Ethisphere is a leading international organization dedicated to the creation, advancement and sharing of best practices in business ethics, governance, anti-corruption and sustainability.

The organization recognized Waste Management for the sixth straight year. It cited the company for its strong corporate culture focused on deep commitments to ethics and communities and setting and achieving ambitious sustainability goals. 

“This recognition from Ethisphere reflects our most fundamental commitment to keeping the environment ­ and our people and our neighbors – safe,” said David Steiner, chief executive officer and president of Waste Management.  “As an industry leader, we continue to develop strategies to extract value from waste, which both minimizes our environmental impact and provides more value to our customers.”

This is the seventh year Ethisphere has published the rankings. For more information, visit ethisphere.com/wme.
