ACA member line among the world’s most ethical companies

Holland America Line was recognized in 2012 as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere Institute, the leading business ethics think-tank.

Out of a record number of nominations for the award, Holland America secured its spot on the list by implementing and maintaining upright business practices and initiatives that are instrumental to the company’s success, benefit the community and raise the bar for ethical standards within the industry.

Holland America Line also earned the coveted Ethics Inside® Certification from the Ethisphere Institute in December. The cruise line completed the certification process in 2011 and was awarded certification for 2012-2013.

Vice President, General Counsel and Chief Ethics Officer Kelly Clark accepted the 2012 World’s Most Ethical Companies awards at an event in New York on March 15, 2012. “We received an extremely high score for a first-time submission when we applied for Ethics Inside Certification,” Clark said. “To be recognized with these back-to-back honors is a reflection of our commitment to ethics.”
