AECOM has earned the coveted Compliance Leader Verification awarded by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.

Reviewing ethics and compliance program and corporate culture

The Compliance Leader Verification process involves a rigorous review of an ethics and compliance program and corporate culture. It includes completing the Ethics Quotient® (EQ), a questionnaire covering the elements of an effective program; benchmarking program practices against the World’s Most Ethical Companies®; and extensive document review and interviews with executives and stakeholders.  

AECOM has strong ethics and compliance leadership that is empowered by a C-suite and Board who understand that strong ethics is good business. Our review team was impressed by key hallmarks of the program including 100% training completion rates, a solid E&C risk assessment process, and a commitment to continual improvement,” explains Jodie Fredericksen, J.D., Senior Compliance Counsel of Ethisphere.

Exemplifying world-class compliance standards

AECOM’s performance was evaluated on six key areas: program resources and structure; perceptions of ethical culture; written standards; training and communication; risk assessment, monitoring and auditing; and enforcement, discipline, and incentives.

“We are honored to receive Compliance Leader Verification recognition from Ethisphere—another independent acknowledgment affirming that we have an effective Ethics & Compliance program that exemplifies world-class compliance standards,” says AECOM’s Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer Antonio D’Amico. “This distinction reflects the commitment of our employees and the strength of our Ethics & Compliance team working together to realize our purpose of delivering a better world.”
