Environment, Ethics and the Corporation synthesises the perspectives of corporate environmental strategy, urban planning, international environmental diplomacy and ethics in a single, wide-ranging volume. Providing a unique analysis of the growing social and environmental responsibility within the corporate sector, this book discusses corporate innovation, entrepreneurial approaches and corporate culture from both an environmental and global perspective. Partnerships with government and non-governmental organisations on achieving environmental goals are presented in a wide range of case studies and examples which include both developed and non-developing countries. In the final section of the book, the authors turn an incisive and detailed gaze on the ethical dilemmas facing the globalised and environmentalised corporation of the future.
