AbstractThis volume examines business and management ethics from the viewpoints of sustainability and sustainable development. The author looks at how some companies are already adopting sustainable business practices, and reasons that in the very near future, economic institutions will be judged by how well they meet environmental and ethical goals, along with their current economic goals.
