They are trying to prevent the next Rana Plaza factory collapse, the next Deepwater Horizon explosion, the next Foxconn labor abuses. Obviously, they don’t always succeed. Christine Bader was one of those people. She loved BP and then-CEO John Browne’s lofty rhetoric on climate change and human rights—until a string of fatal BP accidents, Browne’s abrupt resignation under a cloud of scandal, and the start of Tony Hayward’s tenure as chief...

El debate sobre la responsabilidad corporativa no está exento de sentimientos y emociones a la hora de argumentar o de enjuiciar las actividades de las empresas en este terreno.

Como sucede con todo fenómeno emergente, son muchas las dudas que se generan alrededor de él y varios los interrogantes que se le plantean al directivo que...

People are often skeptical that there is anything they can do to raise society’s ethical level. Mark Pastin begs to differ. We can make a difference, and we don’t need ethics “experts” to tell us what to do. He argues that we all have an innate ethical sense—what he calls an “ethics eye.” He offers tools for sharpening the ethics eye so we can see and do the right thing ourselves, particularly in the workplace, where our decisions can affect not just ourselves but coworkers, clients, customers, and even an entire organization. Seeing what’s right is one thing—getting others to agree with you...

Despite four decades of good faith effort to teach ethics in business schools, you’ll still find today headlines about egregious excess and scandal. It becomes reasonable to ask why these efforts have not been working. Business faculty in ethics courses spend a lot of time teaching theories of ethical reasoning and analyzing those big, thorny dilemmas—triggering what one professor called “ethics fatigue.” But what if faculty stopped focusing on ethical analysis and focused on a new curriculum—one that builds a conversation across the core curriculum (not only in ethics courses) and also...

The emergence of voluntary corporate codes of conduct since the early 1990s is both a manifestation of and a response to the process of globalization.

This work provides a critical perspective on the growth and significance of corporate codes with a particular focus on working conditions and labour rights. It brings together work by academics, practitioners and activists....

Al Golin has helped create trust strategies for global business leaders including The Walt Disney Company, Hewlett-Packard, McDonald's, Toyota, Owens-Corning, and many others.
