Like the family unit, companies and corporations shape the ethical profile of a society. Ethics are not thought but practiced. Life education and rearing provide the bedrock of ethical behaviour. Respect to others and thriving for the common good dictate the ethical stance of corporations. A sense of always doing the right thing is a guarantee for ethical practice, correctness and justice. Ethics lead to meritocracy with all concerned attaining what is theirs and nothing more and nothing less. The typical stakeholders of good ethical conduct are shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers, authorities, regulators and society at large. A new and not so new concept finding its way into our agendas nowadays is ESG. No matter how determined everybody is to adopt ESG in our decisions there can be no effectiveness in the absence of application of basic instinctive ethics. 

Topics on the agenda

  • Corporate governance 
  • Business Codes of conduct
  • Code of Ethics for Accountants
  • IESBA code
  • EU recommendations and relevant directives

Why is the session of relevance to our members?

There is no future to our profession if we ignore basic ethics. Our profession is not only about generating individual wealth but also about a role in society. 

Target Audience

Professionals, business owners, directors, managers and staff and students.
