CH2M HILL, a global full-service consulting, design, construction and operations firm, has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute as one of the 2011 World’s Most Ethical Companies.

CH2M HILL has a Sacramento office serving the region including Davis.

“Doing our work ethically and treating our clients, colleagues, and communities we serve with civility and respect is core to the way we live and do work,” said Lee McIntire, CH2M HILL chairman and CEO, in a news release. “This recognition is an honor and testament to the dedication of our 23,000 global employees to conduct business in the most ethical manner.”

Alex Brigham, executive director of the Ethisphere Institute, said “as companies strive to maintain a competitive advantage, good ethics translate into better business, and better business means better bottom lines.”

“CH2M HILL recognizes the important role that principled practices play in brand reputation, which ultimately is the most valuable asset for a corporation,” Brigham said in the release. “Each year, the competition gets more intense for the World’s Most Ethical Companies and this year was no exception with a record number of organizations vying for this distinguished honor. Ethisphere congratulates CH2M HILL on being one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for 2011.”

The methodology for the ranking includes reviewing codes of ethics, litigation and regulatory infraction histories; evaluating the investment in innovation and sustainable business practices; looking at activities designed to improve corporate citizenship; and studying nominations from senior executives, industry peers, suppliers and customers.

Denver-based CH2M HILL employs more than 23,000 people including 1,500 in a dozen California offices. The company has been providing sustainable solutions to communities in California since 1946. CH2M HILL’s full-service offices deliver engineering and design services for water, transportation, energy, industrial facilities and environmental projects throughout the state.
