Blue Shield of California Named One of the 2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies

The nonprofit health plan receives Ethisphere Institute’s top honor for a sixth time

BY HOPE SCOTT - I am excited to announce that Blue Shield of California has been recognized as one of the 2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute, the global leader in defining and advancing the standard of ethical business practices. As a nonprofit health plan, Blue Shield of California is dedicated to its mission to provide all Californians access to high-quality, affordable health care.


This is the sixth time that Blue Shield of California has received this illustrious designation. We are extremely proud of this accomplishment, as it shines a light on our company’s commitment to ethical behavior as we pursue the fulfillment of our Mission. Congratulations are due to all the members of our workforce who, by Living Our Values Every Day, have once again helped us to achieve this recognition.



In receiving the World’s Most Ethical Companies designation, Blue Shield of California is in the company of an impressive group of local, national, and international honorees. Like Blue Shield of California, those companies have also demonstrated a commitment to leading with integrity and prioritizing ethical business practices. In a time when ethical behavior often seems to be the exception rather than the rule, I am proud to see Blue Shield of California recognized as a company whose success is defined and driven by its commitment to ethics and integrity.
