Ethics In Brief: Challenges In Business Ethics
This paper opens by noting the apparent gap between published codes of business ethics and actual business performance. It proposes that business ethics should be taken as seriously by Christians as environmental ethics or bio-ethics. It considers business ethics from two angles: the relationship between business and wider society, and the relationships within corporations between various stakeholders. This paper reviews and analyses some of the existing legal and moral principles governing business practice, both in Britain and globally.
