Avangrid Recognized as One of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for Sixth Year

Annual recognition highlights organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to business integrity through robust ethics, compliance, and governance programs

Avangrid, Inc. (NYSE: AGR), a leading sustainable energy company and a member of the Iberdrola Group, has been recognized for the sixth consecutive year as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies year by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices. Avangrid is one of only eight honorees globally in the Energy and Utilities sector in 2024.

“Ethics are not just a set of rules, they are the moral compass that guides our decisions,” said Pedro Azagra, Avangrid CEO. “We’re incredibly proud to be one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for the sixth year in a row. This recognition is a testament to the unwavering commitment of our entire Avangrid team and the Iberdrola Group to conduct business with the highest ethical standards. We will remain committed to upholding these principles and contributing positively to both our business and society.”

The 2024 World’s Most Ethical Companies list includes a total of 136 honorees spanning 20 countries and 44 industries. Avangrid’s continued presence on the list can be attributed to the company’s strong corporate governance and sustainability system, which is integral to Avangrid’s corporate purpose and comprehensive ESG+F strategy (environment, society, governance, and financial strength).

“Congratulations to Avangrid for earning their place among the World’s Most Ethical Companies for the sixth consecutive year,” said Erica Salmon Byrne, Ethisphere’s chief strategy officer and executive chair. “As Avangrid understands, being a good corporate citizen isn’t just about compliance; it’s about integrity, transparency, and accountability. Prioritizing ethical behavior not only gains the trust of stakeholders, but also creates a sustainable foundation for long-term success. We applaud Avangrid for their dedication to these values and for demonstrating that strong ethics is good business.”

Ethics & Performance

The listed 2024 World’s Most Ethical Companies® Honorees outperformed a comparable index of global companies by 12.3 percentage points from January 2019 to January 2024.

Methodology & Scoring

The World's Most Ethical Companies assessment is grounded in Ethisphere's proprietary Ethics Quotient®, an extensive questionnaire that requires companies to provide over 240 different proof points on their culture of ethics; environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices; ethics and compliance program; diversity, equity, & inclusion; and initiatives that support a strong value chain. That data undergoes further qualitative analysis by Ethisphere's panel of experts who spend thousands of hours vetting and evaluating each year's group of applicants. This process serves as an operating framework to capture and codify truly best-in-class ethics and compliance practices from organizations across industries and from around the world.
