Do companies need to be ethical in order to be sustainable?
The development and integration of an ethical framework in companies has brought about changes that are highly relevant for business management. Are these changes just a fad, or will they have a sustained impact over time? Have they brought about a new business management model? And what about a new business model?
In this session, we will explore 10 fundamental contributions of ethics to the world of business and organisations and discuss the keys to understanding the new business model.
