This resonates with our core mission at IFPMA, which is to help advance ethical business practices that strengthen the pharmaceutical and health-related sectors around the globe. To introduce students to the theories and practices of business ethics and social responsibility in national and global contexts and the personal, ethical dilemmas, which people in organisations can face within such contexts. Corporate social responsibility is connected to what today’s companies call ESG—environmental, social, and governance. ESG is a practice that incorporates sustainability into a company business model.
We believe that an investment in business ethics drives sustainable business benefits, including higher levels of staff engagement, better and more consistent decision-making, and heightened levels of trust. We work closely with organisations to understand their needs and identify best practice in order to raise awareness of ethical issues and provide practical solutions. Companies that embrace ESG find that it improves their brand and ultimately increases profitability.
