At this seminar, we considered what should be the core principles for the modern business world in the future: scandals can quickly emerge from nowhere and overwhelm companies, and, in an increasingly competitive environment, those who are attacked for treating important stakeholders unfairly can quickly suffer grave damage. Business and personal integrity is at stake. Responsible business leaders must now do more than conduct their businesses lawfully. How can they avoid the opprobrium of dubious practices, which will damage reputation, profitability and shareholder value? Does the market now demand more than compliance with the law? How can business leaders ensure that they engage – and are seen to engage – in good practice and achieve fair treatment for their investors, their customers, their staff and the general public?
