Recognizing Businesses for Outstanding Ethics and Integrity

The Better Business Bureau Torch Awards for Ethics recognize companies that display an outstanding level of ethics and integrity in all business dealings.

These companies generate a high level of trust among employees, customers and the community. The award is open to all for-profit businesses located in central, northern and western Arizona that are in good standing with BBB. BBB Accreditation is not required.

How It Works
A company must first be nominated for the award. Nominate a company for the 2018 Torch Awards for Ethics. Nomination Deadline: December 15, 2017. Application Deadline: January 8, 2018.

There are five categories based on number of employees:
