John Deere is recognized as one of the 2023 World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.

A commitment to ethical corporate citizenship 

2023 is the 16th time that John Deere has been recognized on the World’s Most Ethical Companies list, underscoring the company’s commitment to ethical corporate citizenship to provide the food, fuel, fiber, and infrastructure to support a growing global population – and to help John Deere’s customers do their jobs more sustainably.

In fact, sustainability is rooted firmly at the core of John Deere's operations – from business strategies and processes, to technology development. In its 2022 Sustainability Report, Deere showcased progress towards delivering more sustainable solutions for customers, dealers, shareholders, and supported communities. This includes the company’s recently announced ExactShot™ on-planter fertilizer system, which allows farmers to reduce the amount of starter fertilizer needed during planting by more than 60 per cent.

Promoting environmental stewardship 

John Deere's long-term commitment to ethical business and sustainability is also underpinned by its Leap Ambitions, which are focused, and measurable goals designed to boost economic value and sustainability for farmers and customers. With a mission of helping farmers do more with less, John Deere promotes environmental stewardship to protect the planet and sustain the growing needs of future generations.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of the 2023 World's Most Ethical Companies®. This honor reinforces the importance of conducting business ethically and sustainably. As we continue our Smart Industrial journey, we encourage everyone to foster a culture of innovation, inclusion, and integrity each day. Thank you to our employees who continue to make John Deere a great place to work,” said Josh Jepsen, Senior Vice President & Chief Financial Officer at John Deere.
