Online resources: Summary: "In Cosmopolitan Business Ethics: Towards a Global Ethos of Management, Jacob Dahl Rendtorff maps the concept of global business ethics, related to sustainability and corporate governance, via an examination of the major theories of business ethics and the philosophy of management. The book is based on the philosophy of Immanuel Kant and the European tradition, which is applied as the foundation for the analysis of the contemporary European and Anglo-American debate on business ethics in order to formulate an up-to-date theory of global business ethics. The book will compare the different schools of business ethics, corporate citizenship, and the philosophy of management and will address the modern-day issues of sustainability, business and human rights, corporate social responsibility, stakeholder management, and corporate governance, offering insights on how to deal with these international challenges of global economics, the development and protection of human rights, and the environment. This book proposes a decision-making model for cosmopolitan business ethics as the foundation of management and leadership in dealing with the complexities of globalization. The case studies will address the efforts of businesses to work with global and cosmopolitan business ethics at the levels of maintaining corporate integrity. Both the theoretical argument and case studies presented in the book are supplemented with interviews with notable business ethicists, philosophers of management, business managers, and public policy-makers."--Provided by publisherSummary: Cover; Half Title; Title Page; Copyright Page; Dedication; Table of Contents; List of figures; List of tables; About the author; Preface; Acknowledgments; Introduction; Themes for cosmopolitan business ethics; Cosmopolitan business ethics as future management science; 1 What is cosmopolitan business ethics?; Business ethics in private and public organizations; Cosmopolitan business ethics and creation of trust; Focus on global social responsibility; Social responsibility in Scandinavia: The inclusive labor market; Business ethics in practice; Business ethics in organization and managementSummary: Is business ethics profitable?The purpose of the programs for ethics and values-driven leadership; 2 Business ethics in the age of globalization; Ethics and globalization of the market economy; Neoliberalism, competition states, and globalization; Strengths and weaknesses of globalization; Social responsibility as risk management; Values and globalization; International codes of ethics and codes of conduct; International business ethics as a first dimension of cosmopolitan business ethics; Caux Round Table Principles: Guidelines for global ethics; 3 What are values?Summary: Judgment and moral thinking in managementEthics and economics.
