Sustainable development : the UN Millennium Development Goals, the UN Global Compact, and the common good by Oliver F Williams( )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For business to flourish, society must flourish. In today's global economy, business serves the common good not only by producing goods and services but also by reaching out to the many who are not even in the market because they lack marketable skills and the resources to acquire them. Sustainable Development: The UN Millennium Development Goals, the UN Global Compact, and the Common Good contains twenty-two essays that document the work of Western companies, working through the UN Global Compact and its Principles of Responsible Investment and the Principles for Responsible Management Education, to shape more peaceful and just societies. Seven case studies by leading businesses and private-public partnerships--including Microsoft, Merck, Sumitomo Chemical, Nestle, Coca-Cola, Novartis, and Levi Strauss--outline their projects, especially those advancing the MDGs (Millennium Development Goals) designed to alleviate dire poverty. Twelve chapters reflect on some of the conceptual issues involved with the MDGs, and the three concluding essays examine the future of the UN Global Compact, of the Millennium Development Goals, and of the role of business enterprise in society."--Publisher's Website

The moral imagination : how literature and films can stimulate ethical reflection in the business world( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays gathered in The Moral Imagination: How Literature and Films Can Stimulate Ethical Reflection in the Business World show how, through literature, art, and film, society might learn to develop a sense of moral imagination. Cultivating the imagination through art, literature, and film illuminates our understanding of what it means to be human. By having a genuine sense of self, one can expand an impoverished moral vision and open the way for the greatness of heart that is needed to guide us through an ethical life in business. The focus on moral images in business ethics is credited, in part, to Aristotle. Some of these essays can be seen as arguing for a retrieval of the Aristotelian insight on ethics for the business ethics of our time. Ethics in this perspective is not primarily concerned with analyzing situations so that we can make correct decisions but rather with reflecting on what is constitutive of the good life. The fostering of this philosophical tradition can bring a crucial corrective to the way business ethics is practiced today

Economic imperatives and ethical values in global business : the South African experience and international codes today by Suresh P Sethi( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book undertakes an in-depth study and a systematic analysis of the workings of the Sullivan Principles and their impact on: the operations of the US corporation in South Africa; the process of the dismantling of apartheid and creation of a non-racial, democratic government in South Africa; and the actions of multinational corporations from other countries and large South African corporations in emulating the behaviour of US multinational corporations and thereby enlarging their impact through a multiplier effect. The objective of this text is to learn from the experience of the Sullivan Principles, and interpret how this experience might be translated into developing "rules of the game" and "codes of business ethics" as large multinational corporations continue to confront the issues of human rights, living and working conditions of workers in their overseas manufacturing operations, and where there is constant pressure on the corporations to pay more attention to environmental protection, sustainable growth, and preservation of biodiversity
