Practising Responsible Business Behaviours

This module examines the nature of business enterprise and its relationship with wider society, seeking answers to the question: what does it mean for businesses to behave responsibly? There is an ongoing debate regarding this question, with answers ranging from ‘just maximize shareholder value’ to ‘consider everyone who is affected, including unborn future generations’, with many variations in between. In this ongoing debate we encounter ideas regarding, for example, stakeholder theory, the triple bottom line, corporate social responsibility, business ethics, the role of the state or of supra-national organizations, and so on.
