Two Cruise Lines Named to 2013 World's Most Ethical Companies List

For the second consecutive year, Holland America Line and Seabourn were listed among the World’s Most Ethical Companies List by Ethisphere Institute, a leading business ethics think-tank.

Holland America Line and Seabourn secured their spots on the list by implementing and maintaining successful business models while also benefiting the community. Both cruise lines accepted their awards at a recent ceremony in New York City.

In selecting the World’s Most Ethical Company winners, Ethisphere Institute reviews a variety of areas, including a candidate’s code of ethics, litigation and regulatory infraction history, investment in innovation and sustainable business practices, and activities designed to improve corporate citizenship.

It comes as little surprise that both of these lines were chosen to receive such a prestigious award. Both lines have been the receiver of numerous awards for environmental leadership and commitment to sustainable onboard practices. Both also work assiduously to involve the company, employees, and guests in a collective effort to give back to communities and organizations across the globe.
