ITASCA, Ill., March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. (NYSE: AJG) today announced that, for the second year in a row, it has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute, the leading business ethics think-tank, as one of the 2013 World's Most Ethical Companies.  This recognition highlights organizations worldwide that outperform their industry when it comes to ethical business practices and behavior as well as ethical industry leadership. 

"We've always focused on running our business with integrity and strong ethical values," said J.

Ethisphere reviewed hundreds of companies and evaluated a record number of applications, naming the companies that surpassed their industry peers to this year's World's Most Ethical Companies list.  Its proprietary methodology for the WME ranking includes reviewing codes of ethics, litigation and regulatory infraction histories; evaluating the investment in innovation and sustainable business practices; looking at activities designed to improve corporate citizenship; and studying nominations from senior executives, industry peers, suppliers and customers.  With a record number of nominations, the 2013 list recognizes 145 companies in 36 industries and more than 100 countries.  Forty three of the WME companies are headquartered outside the United States. 

"A strong ethical foundation is a competitive advantage, and Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. recognizes the important role corporate responsibility plays in improving its bottom line," said Alex Brigham, executive director of the Ethisphere Institute.  "As more and more organizations strive for this honor each year, Gallagher's inclusion as a World's Most Ethical Company for 2013 demonstrates its industry-leading commitment to ethics and dedication to integrity."
