For the ninth year in a row, Georgia-based insurer Aflac has been named to the Ethisphere Institute's 2015 list of World's Most Ethical Companies®, a distinction that honors superior achievements in transparency, integrity, ethics and compliance.

"As a business that sells a promise to our customers that we will be there for them in their times of need, it is reassuring to our company and our policyholders that the standard-bearers on corporate ethics believe Aflac behaves with integrity and ethics," Aflac Chairman and CEO Dan Amos said.

According to Ethisphere's Chief Executive Officer Timothy Erblich, the mission of Ethisphere is to improve corporate behavior in a way that positively impacts the world.

"There's a lot of rules out of there for companies and there’s a lot of things that happen when things go wrong, but there’s not a lot of standards of good behavior," Erblich said. "We thought we could positively effect change by creating those standards of good behavior and recognizing those top performers."
