PANAMA CITY, Panama, March 16, 2011 – Recognized internationally for its innovative work and ethical business practices, the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute as one of the 2011 World’s Most Ethical Companies.  According to the Ethisphere Institute, the ACP secured a spot on the list from a record number of nominations by “going the extra mile and implementing 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.”
 
“We are truly honored by this award. At the Canal – we have a set of Guiding Principles – our True North if you will, that inform and inspire our work. At the very core of these principles is our commitment to transparency, honesty, responsibility to the Panamanian people, our customers and the environment,” said Panama Canal Administrator/CEO, Alberto Alemán Zubieta.  “These principles are our core values and reinforce our will and passion to serve our customers and provide a safe, reliable and efficient service to the shipping and maritime industry.”
