Since 2008, Ten Thousand Villages has been named one of World’s Most Ethical Companies annually by the Ethisphere Institute. 

The Ethisphere Institute, the leading business ethics think-tank, began publishing WME rankings in 2007, evaluating hundreds of companies through in-depth research and multi-step analysis.
