Traditionally, books on business ethics focus on CSR, companies’ relations with their stakeholders, and corporate citizenship. More recently, green credentials and sustainability have been added to that agenda. Unconventionally, this book argues that business ethics are basic to running business, not a separate subject. They are inherent to the governance and management of every organization, not an optional exercise in corporate citizenship. Business ethics concern behaviour in business and the behaviour of business. Decisions at every level in a company have ethical implications – strategically in the board room, managerially throughout the organization, and operationally in all of its activities. The use, and sometimes the abuse, of corporate power, the process of corporate governance, raises ethical issues. Business involves risk-taking, whether decisions are at the strategic, managerial, or operational level. Exposure to ethical risk needs to be part of every organization’s strategy formulation, policy making, and enterprise risk management. Designed to be read by both undergraduates and postgraduates, this book is a primer on ethics in business. It is also relevant to ethics courses that are now part of many legal, accountancy and other professional examinations. The book is not about moral philosophy, nor does it prescribe appropriate standards of behaviour or recommend economic, legal or political solutions. Rather it enables readers to recognize ethical issues in business, to respond appropriately, and to embed ethics in business processes. The book not only considers what business ethics are, and why they are important, but offers practical approaches on how to develop a successful corporate ethics culture.

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,7, Munich Business School University of Applied Sciences, language: English, abstract: Particularly in the last decades the awareness of companies themselves and the public for good corporate governance increased dramatically. “Corporate governance is set to be the primary focus for the 21st” century. Most of the advanced economies have released new corporate governance rules and codes or company laws, especially as a result of the financial crisis in 2007 and the breakdown of several big companies worldwide. In Australia attention to corporate governance has grown after the „major corporate collapses and scandals of 2001 and 2002“, which included „five publicly traded (...) companies (...) [such as the] telecom company (One.Tel)“. One.Tel ran out of money and collapsed in 2001. The company could not be revived, all assets were sold and the workers laid off. It has once been the fourth largest telecom company in Australia. The collapse of the Australian company is „associated with serious deficiencies in its corporate governance, including weaknesses in internal control, (...) management communication with the board, and poor executive pay-to-performance link.“ In the first part, this paper will provide you with background information on the terms corporate governance and corporate control. The second part outlines corporate control in Australia by elaborating on the market for corporate control, monitoring by shareholders, monitoring by non-executives and renumeration.

Corporate Ethics, Governance, and Social Responsibility: Precepts and Practices addresses these issues and deals with three key concepts impacting contemporary businesses: business or corporate ethics, corporate governance, and corporate social responsibility.
