A new text for new realities: Business Ethics & Corporate Social Responsibility charts a course for students through the unprecedented challenges and turbulence of modern business and its implications for people across the globe.

Moving beyond the Anglo-American focus of existing works, the authors employ a refreshingly international perspective to leave students with a broad and reflective understanding of business ethics. A flexible 3-part structure, developed from extensive market feedback, aligns with the latest course structures, while a strong focus on environmental ethics and sustainability throughout provides market-leading coverage of this vital issue. An unparalleled range of case studies, including chapter cases and longer premium cases supplied by HBR, Ivey and ECCH, combine with a full set of online supporting resources to make this the complete introduction to business ethics in a rapidly evolving world.


Full international coverage that looks beyond the traditional European and American contexts to provide the complete picture
Hundreds of real-world examples that illustrate ethical decision-making in action and what to learn from results
Balanced discussion of all the key players in business ethics and corporate social esponsibility including SMEs, NGOs and MNCs
Integrative case studies from premium providers featuring a diverse range of organizations including Red Bull, IKEA, and UNHCR

"The Griseri & Seppala text is a landmark publication for a number of reasons: The book is educationally sound and will serve as excellent textbook for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in MBA or MPA programmes. It has a global focus which will make the book user-friendly in non-Western settings. In the medium term this book will make a signifi cant contribution to establishing business ethics as a distinct discipline withits own content areas and philosophical rigour." - Piet J Naude MA DTh (Stell), Director and Professor of Ethics: Nelson Mandela Business School, Port Elizabeth, South Africa, Immediate past President of the Business Ethics Network of Africa (BEN-Africa), and African representative on the Executive Committee: International Society of Business, Economics, and Ethics (ISBEE)

"Accessible, clearly written and relevant. A worthy and very welcome contribution to the field." - Dr David Campbell, Senior Lecturer in Accounting and Ethics, Newcastle University Business School

"Griseri & Seppala is an excellent resource for students who want to bring together ethics, CSR and sustainability into one core text. It offers a comprehensive and balanced introduction to the area of ethics and CSR, while chapters are enriched by examples and case studies looking at UK, European and international business." - Dr Louise Preget, Senior Lecturer, Bournemouth University Business School
