What is Business Ethics Summit
Business Ethics Summit, powered by Core, is the first international forum involving the most relevant Italian and international stakeholders and will be held on Friday, June 9 from 9 a.m. at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences in Vatican City.
The event aims to analyze the theme of ethics applied to business through the comparison and analysis of best practices and case studies.
Today, all companies are called upon to reflect on their ability to manage the onset of ethical dilemmas that may affect their decision-making process. Applying certain ethical and moral principles to the corporate dimension can help create attractive businesses both internally and externally and inspire the transformation of the business into the engine of sustainable and equitable economic growth.
Vatican representatives, corporate managers, experts and academics, government representatives, and business journalists will attend the event, divided into Opening Remarks, Comments, and Challengers. Participants' contributions will explore the relationship between ethics and business and the possibility of companies to be ethically guided according to the "from growth to prosperity" principle that places financial growth in a holistic dimension oriented towards collective well-being.
