The Australasian Business Ethics Network was founded in Melbourne, Australia, in 2010 – by Jan Schapper, Campbell Jones and Michelle Greenwood. We are a community of scholars and practitioners from a range of institutions across Australia, New Zealand and Oceania. We share a passion for developing and extending the Australasian business ethics agenda. We recognise the uniqueness of the Australasian approach, experience and contribution to the field of business ethics.
Our network aims to be organic and evolving, with an emphasis on dialogue and collaboration. As scholars we value: creativity, pluralism, tolerance, sharing, openness, reflexivity, inclusivity, inter-disciplinarity, critical enquiry, and our Australasian ‘voice’. The approach we adopt is consultative, and members are invited to contact the Steering Committee with ideas or comments.
Areas of interest include, but are not restricted to: business-society relationships, corporate responsibility, environmental ethics, indigenous ethics, social and environmental sustainability, globalisation, spirituality, business ethics education.
