This recognition is for Wipro's strong commitment to ethical leadership, compliance practices, and corporate citizenship, a company release said.
The Ethisphere Institute is a leading international organisation dedicated to the creation, advancement and sharing of best practices in business ethics, governance, anti-corruption and sustainability.
This is the seventh annual selection of the World's Most Ethical (WME) Companies, a recognition that highlights companies that outperform industry peers when it comes to ethical behaviour.
