US Steel has been named one of the world’s most ethical companies in 2023 by Ethisphere.
The Pittsburgh-based steelmaker said this is the second consecutive year it has been recognized and, out of 135 honorees, is the only integrated steel producer to be chosen. Scrap recycler and long steel producer Schnitzer Steel Industries was also among those picked.
Ethisphere describes itself as “a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.”
US Steel said the assessment process includes more than 200 questions on culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity, and initiatives that support a strong value chain.
“We are honored to be included as one of the world’s most ethical companies for a second consecutive year,” Duane D. Holloway, US Steel SVP, general counsel, and chief ethics and compliance officer, said in a statement on March 13.
