Ethics & transparency

We make doing business right work*

*When people are straightforward, that builds trust. The same goes for organizations. It's not just good ethical sense, it makes good business sense. Our reputation matters to us, and it's everyone's responsibility — our employees, contractors and suppliers —to uphold our standards and, more importantly, our commitments. 


During 2016, Eaton was named one of Corporate Responsibility magazine's "100 Best Corporate Citizens." We were also named in the FTSE4Good Index Series, designed to measure the performance of companies demonstrating strong Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices.


The independent environmental non-profit CDP once again recognized us as a leader among S&P 500 companies, naming Eaton to its Climate Disclosure Leadership Index.
