Avnet was recently named one of the world's most ethical company for the fourth consecutive year by the Ethisphere Institute.
Ethisphere describes the IT company as “a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.”
“Avnet has a reputation of helping our customers win, whether they’re makers, startups or large technology manufacturers,” William Amelio, Avnet’s chief executive officer, said. “Trust is at the foundation of everything we do in supporting customers worldwide at every phase of the product lifecycle. Our team earns the trust of our customers and suppliers each day. Enabling the success of our customers will never come at the expense of the highest standards of ethics and integrity or of the relationships with our global site communities. Ethisphere’s recognition is a testament to Avnet’s commitment, global competitiveness and focus on social responsibility, and I know our employees take great pride in this repeated recognition.”
Avent has repeatedly achieved this recognition by successfully balancing corporate citizenship and responsibility with its business strategy. The Avnet Innovation Lab at Arizona State University is one example of how the company achieves this balance.
The Ethisphere Institiute honors businesses annually based on their work to create positive change as well as the culture they create for employees, investors and customers.
