JLL has been awarded Ethics Inside® Certification by Ethisphere, a global leader in setting and advancing ethical business practice standards for 2021 and 2022. The certification was not the first granted by the Institute this year, which also recognized JLL as one of the Most Ethical Companies in the world for the 14th consecutive year.

"This achievement demonstrates how robust and efficient our ethics and compliance program is. We have worked continuously to improve it in recent years but such recognitions show that our values and commitment to integrity are present in the management of our business and relationships with our clients, suppliers, and all our people," says Aline Assis, Legal Director for Brazil and LatAm at JLL.

"We are honored to receive the Ethics Inside Certification, which is a confirmation of how our people live our ethics values every day. Our commitment to building a strong culture and running a business with integrity has always been our priority. Our core values of teamwork, ethics, and excellence support the way we manage our organization," explains Claire Handley, Director of Ethics and Compliance at JLL.

Ethics Inside certification involves comprehensive reviews and evaluations of existing corporate governance systems and practices, such as ethics and compliance programs, corporate citizenship initiatives, responsibility and leadership, reputation, and legal history.

"JLL has impressed our team with its commitment to continually improve its ethics and compliance program," said Jodie Fredericksen, JD, Ethisphere Senior Compliance Advisor. "It's a company that continues to innovate with program elements, including the development of a mobile application that provides guidance on common legal, ethical, and compliance issues," she adds.

As part of the process, the company that represents itself to receive the certification is evaluated based on best practices, established standards, and the Ethisphere dataset, highlighting the programs and practices of the world's most ethical companies. Ethisphere analysts also review the supporting documentation and conduct interviews with the organization's top leaders.
