PITTSBURGH — For the fifth consecutive year, UPMC has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere Institute — an organization focused on defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices. 
UPMC is one of 135 honorees recognized for 2023, and one of only two organizations recognized in the integrated health care systems category. The companies included in Ethisphere’s assessment span 19 countries and 46 industries.

“At UPMC, we are committed to the highest levels of ethical standards. Our deep commitment to our patients and members drives our innovative approaches to those who trust us to provide them with the very best in patient-centered care,” said Diane Holder, executive vice president of UPMC, and president and chief executive officer of UPMC Health Plan. “We are deeply honored that Ethisphere has recognized UPMC for our commitment to ethical standards and integrity, while pursuing our mission-driven objectives.”

To be recognized on the list, organizations are assessed on company culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity and initiatives that support a strong value chain.

“Ethics matter. Organizations that commit to business integrity through robust programs and practices not only elevate standards and expectations for all, but also have better long-term performance,” said Erica Salmon Byrne, chief executive officer of Ethisphere. “We continue to be inspired by the World’s Most Ethical Companies honorees and their dedication to making real impact for their stakeholders and displaying exemplary values-based leadership.”
