Francis, Ronald and Armstrong, Anona (2003) Ethics as a risk management strategy: the Australian experience. Journal of Business Ethics, 45 (4). pp. 375-385. ISSN 0167-4544


This article addresses the connection of ethics to risk management, and argues that there are compelling reasons to consider good ethical practice to be an essential part of such risk management. That connection has significant commercial outcomes, which include identifying potential problems, preventing fraud, the preservation of corporate reputation, and the mitigation of court penalties should any transgression arise. Information about the legal position, examples of cases, and arguments about the potential benefits of ethics are canvassed. The orientation of this article is essentially Australian. It is hoped that it may provide some insights of value to other countries.
