I think Canon USA being one of the most ethical companies in the USA or Canon being one of the most ethical companies in the world would mean a lot more.
Indeed. And the headline is misleading, as it gives the impression that it was ethical towards people in general, rather than primarily towards its own customer. The award is for having good 'corporate ethical standards', which I don't quite know what it means in practice. The book by Joel Bakan, The New Corporation, could well provide a context for this. Besides, it is awarded by a for-profit company which brings back memories of audit firms giving triple A ratings for sub-prime instruments - not quite the same, I know, just that it feels a tad off. Nevertheless, as a canon customer I guess it is possible to take comfort that the company is ranked well in its ethical practice towards me, rather than being ranked poorly, that is.
