Events such as Trafigura's illegal dumping of toxic waste in Côte d’Ivoire and BP's environmentally disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico have highlighted ethical issues in international business at a time when business leaders, academics and business schools were reflecting on their own responsibilities following the global financial crisis. The scope and scale of the global operations of multinational businesses means that decisions taken in different parts of the world have far reaching consequences beyond the national settings where employees are located or where firms are registered and as such, an awareness of these responsibilities needs to be integrated into all levels and all subjects. Using four guiding principles – a critical multi-level approach rooted in the tradition of European social theory, a comparative and international perspective, a global rather than just a European or American stand point and engaging with subject-specific issues this book aims to 'mainstream' business ethics into the work of teachers and students in business schools. This comprehensive volume brings together contributions from a range of experts in different areas of business studies thereby facilitating and encouraging a move away from business ethics being a box to be ticked to being an integrated consideration across the business disciplines. This impressive book brings ethical considerations back to the heart of the business curriculum and in doing so, provides a companion for the progressive business student throughout their university career.

This book integrates a stakeholder perspective with an issues-oriented approach so students look at how a business's actions affect not just share price and profit but the well-being of employees, customers, suppliers, the local community, the larger society, other nations, and the environment. Fourteen of the twenty-three cases are brand new to this edition, touching on issues such as cyberbullying, fracking, neuromarketing, and for-profit education and involve institutions like Goldman Sachs, Google, Kaiser Permanente, Walmart, Ford, and Facebook. The text has been updated with the latest research, including new national ethics survey data, perspectives on generational differences, and global and international issues. Each chapter includes recent business press stories touching on ethical issues. Several chapters now feature a Point/Counterpoint exercise that challenges students to argue both sides of a contemporary issue, such as too-big-to-fail institutions, the Boston bomber Rolling Stone cover, student loan debt, online file sharing, and questions raised by social media. --

Biological threats like SARS and natural disasters like the tsunami in Indonesia have devastated entire regions, and quickly exhausted budgetary resources. As the field of environmental health continues to evolve, scientists and others must focus on gaining a better understanding of the links between human health and various environmental factors, and on creating new paradigms and partnerships needed to address these complex environmental health challenges facing society. Global Environmental Health in the 21st Century: From Governmental Regulations to Corporate Social Responsibility: Workshop Summary discusses the role of industry in environmental health, examines programs designed to improve the overall state of environmental health, and explores how governmental and corporate entities can collaborate to manage this industry. Stakeholders in both the public and private sectors are looking for viable solutions as the complexity of societal problems and risks associated with management and varying regulatory standards continue to increase. Global Environmental Health in the 21st Century draws critical links and provides insight into the current shape of global environmental health. The book recommends expanding environmental management systems (EMS) to encompass a more extensive global network. It also provides a complete assessment of the benefits and costs resulting from implementation of various environmental management systems.

This book explains the concepts of Ethical Business Practice (EBP) and Ethical Business Regulation (EBR), a new paradigm in compliance and enforcement based on behavioural science and ethics. EBR provides the basis for an effective relationship between a business and its regulators, resulting in better outcomes for both. EBR is attracting extensive attention from regulators and businesses around the world. The UK Government's 2017 Regulatory Futures Review draws on EBR as the foundation for its policy of 'regulatory self-assurance'. EBR draws on findings from behavioural science, responsive regulation, safety and business and integrity management to create a practical and holistic approach. Examples include the open culture that is essential for civil aviation safety, the Primary Authority agreements between regulators and national businesses, and feedback mechanisms provided by market vigilance systems and sectoral consumer ombudsmen. This book provides an essential blueprint for sustainable business and effective future regulation. PRAISE FOR THE BOOK "Finally, a new paradigm in compliance and regulation that gets to the heart of what truly matters--values-based and ethically-based leadership. In the 21st century who you are, how you behave, and what you stand for are destined to become the new frontiers of competitive advantage. Success in the future will be all about the culture the leaders create.†? Richard Barrett, Chairman of the Barrett Values Centre and Founder of the Academy for the Advancement of Human Values. "This book makes an insightful case for business to benefit from being values-driven rather than focussed on short-term profits, and for promoting an open, just culture rather than a blame culture. It also convincingly contends that while business regulators must take closing businesses and deterrence seriously, deterrence can also have counterproductive effects. This is a book rich in lessons about how we can all learn how to build more ethical corporate cultures.†? John Braithwaite, Australian National University "In this long overdue, much needed and wonderfully practical book, Christopher Hodges and Ruth Steinholtz have provided a guide for both business practitioners and regulators that lays out the rationale, a mindset and a roadmap for a more realistic, more honest and ultimately more productive working relationship between these two powerful societal players. The book remains remarkably readable and engaging while providing a solid foundation of insights-from both science and real world experience-into the factors that encourage as well as discourage ethical human behavior. The central argument at the book's heart is the simple yet powerful idea that deterrence and adversarialism have not and will not serve to build the trust-based relationships between the public and the private sectors upon which a productive and mutually beneficial functioning of our economy relies-and that cooperation and a mutual learning orientation will. Although their book targets regulators and business practitioners, its lessons provide a critical key for beginning to address the wide-ranging challenges at the heart of our world's current larger spiral of distrust, fear, resentment and retaliation. Hodges and Steinholtz have done us all a great service.†? Mary C. Gentile PhD, Author of Giving Voice To Values: How To Speak Your Mind When You Know What's Right and Professor of Practice, University of Virginia Darden School of Business "After every institutional failure, the cry goes up for more ethical behaviour from more ethical individuals. But where are such people to be found? How would you identify them? Where do they come from-and what militates against them? This book sets itself the ambitious goal of analysing what ethical businesses look like and how they behave. It doesn't dodge the hard questions or promise simplistic solutions but dares to look fearlessly at the most important questions of our age.†? Margaret Heffernan, Author of Wilful Blindness. Why we ignore the obvious at our peril "Hodges and Steinholtz have done a great service to business. Ethical Business Practice and Regulation is a must-read for all leaders eager to drive sustainable social and economic growth by infusing their organisation with value and integrity. The authors' inspirational vision of a better business world - indeed a better society - can be realised with this practical guide.†? Roswitha Reisinger, General Counsel Europe, Otsuka Pharmaceutical Europe Ltd. "There is a clear and present danger that the economic regulation of utilities becomes ever more invasive and prescriptive. Such a path is undesirable, limiting the discretion and authority of senior management and resulting in a much reduced focus on the needs of the customer…Chris Hodges' Ethical Business Regulation (EBR) concept has provided the Scottish water industry an opportunity to break out of this pattern of ever decreasing circles. EBR has offered an unique opportunity to explore, constructively and collaboratively, the thorniest of regulatory issues and to do the right thing for customers, our environment and our society.†? Alan Sutherland, CEO, Water Industry Commission for Scotland "Regulation is fundamentally about how people in organisations actually behave. This book pulls together the evidence on "what works†? in getting the right results. There is a wealth of material here for smart regulators who are pursuing effectiveness through actual outcomes, not compliance with rules for its own sake.†? Richard Thomas CBE, Information Commissioner (2002-9), Committee on Standards in Public Life (2012-17) "In a time where ethical behaviour is increasingly under attack by various governments around the world, Hodges and Steinholz provide a very timely guide to the importance of the culture of compliance in organizations. Hodges and Steinholz consider the essence of ethical and compliant behaviour asking, "Why do people observe rules? Why do people break them†?? The writers take the reader through a well-organized and compelling journey from biological and physiological influences through to the need for governing agencies and businesses to interact on a relationship of trust. This is critically important because, as the writers clearly articulate in chapter 7, people will not come forward to report ethical breaches if they feel they will be putting themselves at undue personal risk. I truly believe Ethical Business Practice and Regulation: A Behavioural and Based Values Based Approach to Compliance and Enforcement is not only essential reading for ethics and compliance professionals, but rather everyone who is engaged in business on some level. Read it and encourage your colleagues to read it too!†? Thomas Topolski, CCEP-!, Executive Vice President, Turner and Townsend
