Making a difference globally

To advance responsible globalization and good corporate governance, ADA International has entered into strategic commitments with several organizations around the world. These organizations promote responsible global citizenship, good governance, and sustainable development by encouraging business to recognize and commit to sustainable economic growth, environmental protection, and social equity no matter where they operate. They provide a valuable forum for discussion of corporate social responsibility and best practices for acting on this commitment.

Exceeding our professional responsibilities

The people of ADA’s and its sister firms share a long tradition of supporting the communities in which they live and work. In addition to financial contributions made by ADA and its sister firms, people from ADA & sister firms volunteer time and donate money to a variety of causes that encourage economic development and raise public awareness of the positive impact business can have on the community.

Ethics & Compliance

ADA is committed to the highest levels of ethics, integrity, and quality. This is evidenced by ADA ’s business practices and client service standards, their leadership behavior and shared values, and most importantly, by the quality of the people they employ. In fact, ethics, integrity and quality are at the core of all that ADA does.

ADA and its sister firms strive to do not only what is legal, but what is right. The people of ADA have high professional and ethical standards and demonstrate these standards every day through the delivery of quality professional services. They understand that doing the right thing means operating within the letter and the spirit of the laws that govern their professions and the global marketplace.

Ethical Principles

At the heart of this effort are the Ethical Principles of the Member Firms of ADA. Adopted by each of ADA’s member firms and linking directly to the ADA Global Shared Values, these nine Principles define the standards of ethical behavior that unite all the people of ADA’s member firms. In particular, the Principles offer guidance about appropriate ethical and professional conduct covering areas that are critically important to ADA’s member firms’ clients, their people and society.
