Global Council on Business Conduct

Every day, executives confront ethics and business practice issues - both within their companies and in their dealings with other organizations. From wide-ranging questions like “How do we balance what is right with what is profitable?” to specific ones on EU privacy and PRC anti-corruption laws, our members seek to build a global perspective on common concerns:

  • The business case for human rights
  • Whistleblower protection
  • Ethics and compliance in China

Our candid discussions help us to advise our CEOs on good practices and to benchmark in the slippery area of ethics.

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
