MILWAUKEE, WI - June 12, 2008 - Rockwell Automation is recognized as "one of the world's most ethical companies" by the Ethisphere Institute, a think tank that studies business ethics and corporate responsibility. The selection process included reviewing the ethical and legal performance of more than 10,000 leading companies from which 93 were selected as winners by the Ethisphere Institute. Doug Hagerman, Rockwell Automation senior vice president, general counsel and secretary, accepted the award at a joint conference, Driving Profit through Ethical Leadership, sponsored by Ethisphere and Forbes, in New York on June 3.

"This award belongs to the 20,000-plus Rockwell Automation employees around the world who do the right thing every day," said Keith Nosbusch, Rockwell Automation chairman and CEO. "We all contribute to this company’s strong record of corporate citizenship."

Rockwell Automation was evaluated on seven categories: corporate citizenship and responsibility, corporate governance, innovation that contributes to public well being, industry leadership, executive leadership, integrity track record and reputation, and internal systems and ethics.

"Rockwell Automation is commended for developing impressive and meaningful ethical business practices that distinguish them in their industry," said Alexander Brigham, executive director of Ethisphere Institute. "They embody the principle that ethical business practices are more profitable in the long run and serve the corporation's best interests."

"We're proud to be recognized as a global leader in ethics, sustainability and corporate responsibility," said Hagerman.
