Corporate Ethics and Corporate Governance

Front Cover
Walther C. Zimmerli, Klaus Richter, Markus Holzinger
Springer Science & Business Media, Jun 12, 2007 - Business & Economics - 332 pages

Corporations are under fire. Hardly a day goes by that executive conduct doesn’t appear as a topic – or, more accurately, as a problem – in the media. This leads to increased public pressure on corporations, many of whom are reacting and publicly assuming their corporate responsibility.

This book represents an introduction to and overview of the diverse aspects of the ethical challenges confronting companies today. It introduces executives, students and interested observers to the complex trends and developments in business ethics. On the one hand, this book presents industry-specific topics in ethics, and on the other provides a general, interdisciplinary survey of the ethical dimensions of management and business.
