Long Island employers are once again named to Ethisphere’s World’s Most Ethical Companies annual list.

Northwell Health and Henry Schein were among this year’s list, which, announced on Monday, comprises 135 organizations around the world that are recognized for their “unwavering commitment to business integrity.”

“Acting ethically is a core tenant at Northwell Health, so it’s a real validation of our culture to be recognized as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies,” Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell, said in a statement.

“Our team members buy into Northwell’s mission of compassionate and inclusive care. And when you do right by patients, that moral imperative powers everything else,” he added.

“On behalf of the more than 22,000 Team Schein Members, we are pleased to once again be recognized by Ethisphere as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies,” Stanley Bergman, chairman of the board and CEO of Henry Schein, said in a statement.

The assessment process includes more than 200 questions on culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity, and initiatives.

“Our commitment to the success of the stakeholders that make up our ‘mosaic of success’ – Team Schein Members, customers, supplier partners, shareholders, and society – has long been the foundation of our purpose-driven approach to business,” Bergman said.

“Fulfilling this commitment requires tackling significant external challenges to our collective success, including climate change, health inequities, supply chain resilience, and the underrepresentation of women, ethnic minorities, and other diverse populations in health care, among others,” Bergman added. “While progress has been made, much work remains, and we are committed to continuing the journey as a socially responsible corporate citizen.”

“Ethisphere highlights what good corporate character and ethical business practices look like. To see Northwell listed among the best companies worldwide is a tremendous honor,” Greg Radinsky, senior vice president and Northwell’s chief corporate compliance officer, said in a statement. “Northwell is committed to integrity, innovation and excellence and the health system succeeds through a team approach.”
