We are proud to be included in the 2014 list of the World’s Most Ethical Companies, which was released by the Ethisphere Institute on Thursday.
Ethical and responsible business practices are the bedrock of our corporate governance practices. These practices are designed to promote the interests of shareholders, maintain checks and balances, strengthen accountability and foster responsible decision making.
We work diligently to meet our responsibility to serve the needs of the communities in which we live and work, and to manage our business with the utmost integrity. At Microsoft, we are committed to applying our technology, ingenuity and collaborative spirit to help solve critical social and environmental challenges and create fulfilling opportunities for people around the world.
While we are very grateful and highly appreciative of this honor, we recognize there is more work to be done, and we commit ourselves to ongoing improvement.
