Corprate Ethics In China

Ethical Corporation:

Corporate ethics in China "Corporate responsibility professionals are arriving in London this week to participate in a two-day conference on corporate responsibility in China.
Scheduled for 30th and 31st March in central London, the conference is organised by Ethical Corporation and will attract representatives from many multinationals operating in and sourcing from China.

These are expected to include JP Morgan Chase, Intel, Toys R Us, Shell, Novozymes, B&Q, Lafarge, Manpower, H&M, Hennes, and Marks & Spencer.

Delegates will be sharing knowledge on many topics including: Alternatives to factory audits, embedding effective codes of conduct in Chinese operations, and developing effective environmental programmes in China. Also addressed will be how companies can build effective NGO partnerships in China and how firms are addressing the key legal and regulatory issues involved in operating in the country.

Methods of tackling corruption and bribery, acknowledged by many to be a problem in the country, will also be discussed.

The conference reflects not only the upsurge in investment in China, but also the interest in operating responsibly in that country."
