Ethisphere Magazine, a global print publication dedicated to illuminating the important correlation between ethics and profit, will release its annual 100 Most Influential People in Business Ethics. The list will be published in the Q4 issue, available in December.
A panelist of ethics experts from major universities including New York University, Pennsylvania State University, University of Delaware, and Arizona State University, among others, submitted nominations and ranked individuals who influenced ethical behavior in global business. Research was conducted in cooperation with analysts from the Ethisphere Institute.

The 100 Most Influential individuals were indexed against the following nine categories:
