More than 3,000 companies apply to the Ethisphere Institute’s annual list. Ethisphere ranks them based on factors like history of regulatory infractions, sustainable business practices, and peer nominations...Thirty-six of this year’s companies are new to the list, and 26 dropped off of the list...due to litigation and ethics violations, as well as increased competition from their industry [also refers to Cisco, eBay, Salesforce, Symantec, Hitachi, Adobe, Teradata, Xerox, GE, Avaya, Zappos, Amazon, Best Buy, T-Mobile]
