Editor's note. Dr Matthew Haigh from the University of Southampton School of Management raises an issue which is of concern not only to business ethics but to moral philosophy in general: the conditions under which a company, as opposed to an individual can make ethical decisions and behave as a morally responsible entity. This involves considerations of the nature of practical moral argumentation as well as recognizing the crucial role of leadership and corporate culture. The key to a solution consists in the way that individuals in a company are collectively involved in developing an ethical stance and modifying that stance in response to perceived inconsistencies in an ongoing reflexive process of self-criticism.
