Business Ethics: The Sustainable and Responsible Way provides a fresh, contemporary, and hands-on approach to business ethics, emphasizing practical skills.

This practical approach is supported through a rich array of short and long case studies from across the globe, including countries such as the UK, Australia, the US, India, China, Nigeria and Ghana. Cases feature companies such as Patagonia, the Aravind Eye Clinic, Merck and LEGO and examine topics such as the gig economy, fast fashion, electric vehicles, artificial intelligence, and space exploration. Accompanying questions also encourage reflection and the skills needed to apply theory to real-life scenarios.

This textbook is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate students of business ethics, as well as those studying business and society, corporate social responsibility, sustainability, and responsible management. Online resources include PowerPoint slides and a Teaching Guide.
