Ethics in Our World - Good & Bad

A look at international business ethics, and their impact

Remember, you were given a scenario, as well as requirements for this poster assignment; so focus on providing all of the facts & components for your ethical or unethical corporations. An example of an introduction for your poster is below:"International business has conducted itself around the world in some very interesting ways. Some have been positive, while some has been negative. The ethical & unethical actions of such business is the focus here. We believe there are both GOOD businesses, and BAD businesses, who conduct themselves in such ways. Below we will identify and profile/highlight TWO businesses - one who is very ethically responsible, and one who is not. Furthermore, we will attempt to provide a code of conduct for greater corporate social responsibility that all companies shoudl implement."
