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.

This Council is an unparalleled group of E&C professionals whose primary focus is on international, cross-cultural issues. It is an opportunity to network, share best practices and conduct real time benchmarking surveys. The openness andmember sharing make it the one peer group meeting that I am loathe to miss.
