CHICAGO, March 24, 2010 – Jones Lang LaSalle, the leading financial and professional services firm specializing in real estate, has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for 2010.  The only real estate firm to be recognized, Jones Lang LaSalle secured a place on the list by implementing business practices that are instrumental to the firm’s success, benefit the community and shareholders alike, and raise the bar for ethical standards within our industry.
 
This is the third consecutive year that Jones Lang LaSalle has been named to the list by Ethisphere, a think-tank dedicated to the creation, advancement and sharing of best practices in business ethics, corporate social responsibility, anti-corruption and sustainability. 
 
"We are proud to be recognized again as one of the World's Most Ethical Companies," said Colin Dyer, Chief Executive Officer of Jones Lang LaSalle. “Our commitment to corporate responsibility starts with our Board of Directors and Global Executive Committee, is guided by our global team of Ethics Officers and is driven by the dedication of our people worldwide.  I thank them all for the contributions which led to this distinction."
 
Through in-depth research and a multi-step analysis, Ethisphere reviewed a record number of nominations from thousands of companies in over 100 countries and 36 industries in order to determine the winners.  The list is published in Ethisphere Magazine’s Q1 issue.

“Jones Lang LaSalle’s promotion of a sound ethical environment shines within its industry and shows a clear understanding that operating under the highest standards for business behavior goes beyond goodwill and “lip-service” and is intimately linked to performance and profitability,” said Alex Brigham, Executive Director of the Ethisphere Institute. “This year’s World’s Most Ethical Companies award was more competitive than ever, because companies realize that making ethics a priority is critical amidst a tough economic environment.  Good ethics means better business.”
 
The methodology for the WME 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.
