Globalization and Self-Regulation: The Crucial Role That Corporate Codes of Conduct Play in Global Business Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is imperative for the business community to act now to create global, industry-wide standards of conduct. Corporate strategy expert S. Prakash Sethi along with notable experts on issues of global codes of conduct take an in-depth look at global structures and how regulation works from a corporate perspective, providing case studies of several industries and governments who have begun implementing voluntary codes of conducts, including Equator Principles, ICMM, and The Kimberly Process.  He assesses the many types of self-regulations that are currently underway and provides critical analysis for making these more effective, making this a must-read for academics, policy-makers, and corporate leaders.

Book News Annotation:

Editor Sethi (Zicklin School of Business, Baruch College, The City University of New York) gathers international experts in corporate strategy to explore issues related to the voluntary codes of conduct governing multinational organizations. The book is organized by 4 different types of self-regulation: individual company-based voluntary codes of conduct; industry-wide voluntary codes of conduct with industry-controlled governance structures; industry-wide voluntary codes of conduct in collaboration with civil society organizations; and universal multi-industry and multi-purpose voluntary codes of conduct. The book presents a 10-year assessment of the UN Global Compact, and a detailed example of a voluntary multigroup initiative to control the illegal mining and trade of diamonds in war-torn African countries. Other case studies look at Mattel, Inc.'s global manufacturing principles, the defense industry, the International Council on Mining and Metals, and the role of certification in protecting the world's forests.
