In the business environment, there are number of different ethical and moral dilemmas that may arise. Corporate level issues deal with actions of corporate concerns or corporate citizens. My aim is to consider the circumstances in which the standards of ethics may conclude that an individual is obligated to act for the benefit of another party. Our views about the extent of the MNC’s responsibility may depend on whether the problematic practices exist in the MNC’s own factories or in those of its suppliers.
One problem with Carr’s poker analogy is that he overextends it. In a poker game everyone knows the rules, but business situations can be very ambiguous. That is to say that the person will eat, as a practical matter, and the function of ethics is to help him to identify the course of action, among the various possibilities, by which he will satisfy this requirement.
Our Code of Ethics – provides a clear blackbone to our business, ranging from our clear commitment to legal compliance in the countries in which we operate to not accepting or facilitating any form of corruption with a clear no-gift policy. Ethics implicitly regulates areas and details of behavior that lie beyond governmental control.
Another reason and quite significant reason why contemporary business emphasizes ethical behaviour so strongly. Sometimes there is disconnection between the company’s code of ethics and the company’s actual practices. Fathom is the pioneer of impact travel, a new category of travel that provides the opportunity to build community with like-minded travelers, become immersed in another culture, and work alongside its people to create enduring social impact.
Ethics may require not a total ban on marketing to them but special care in how they are marketed to (Brenkert 2008). You hear about the ideas of moral agencies, moral personhood and moral responsibility and they all go together in some kind of package. What ascribing agency and responsibility to firms enables us to do, according to Hasnas, is blame and punish them.
