Globalization no longer focuses only on widening international business, but more and more so on the sustainability of a global presence. Emerging economies with their new players are clashing and challenging the traditional mature advanced economies for s hold in the global marketplace. Both are utilizing various (if not dubious or questionable) forms of competitive strategies in order to gain or maintain their market position. Competition from multiple players in an overcrowded marketplace has raised challenges for global leaders in making the right choices in critical business decisions.

As with everything in any society, there is the right way or the wrong way of doing anything. For many, choosing the wrong way is a serious option, although it means sacrificing on corporate business ethics. For these corporations, to achieve the commercial goals is worth the risk of enormous penalties to both the management involved and the organization.

However, for the long-term players in Global business, upholding high ethical standards and practices is essential to corporate branding. The key business ethics of MNCs focus on how they treat their employees, the work environment, human rights and equality, environmental compliances, and bribery and corruption.

This is a presentation of relevant information and facts regarding the rules and practices of Global business ethics. It also illustrates the ‘cost’ of past failures of MNCs with long jail terms for management, and heavy penalty fines for the corporation amounting to US$ billions. Ignorance and misunderstanding is no protection.

    1. Key issues for global business ethics practices
