ARLINGTON, Va., March 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES) has been named one of the World's Most Ethical Companies for the ninth consecutive year by Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices. AES is one of 56 companies in the world to receive this designation nine or more times and one of only nine companies in the global energy and utilities sector to receive the distinction this year.
"We are honored to be recognized as one of the World's Most Ethical Companies for the ninth year in a row."

The process serves as an operating framework to capture and codify leading practices by organizations across industries around the globe in an objective, consistent and standardized manner.

"We continue to be inspired by the World's Most Ethical Companies honorees and their dedication to integrity, sustainability, governance, and community. Congratulations to AES for earning the World's Most Ethical Companies designation."
