Business Ethics for the Anthropocene

With Knut Ims (Norwegian School of Economics, Bergen) and Antonio Tencati (University of Brescia and Bocconi University Milan) Laszlo Zsolnai gave a presentation on Business Ethics for the Anthropocene at the 9th TransAtlantic Business Ethics Conference from September 28 – October 1, 2016 at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland.

The paper argues that the currently unsustainable state of the Earth (rightly called the “Anthropocene”) is largely due to business, so reconsidering the role of business in society and nature is unavoidable. Without transforming business into a progressive social institution which respects nature, future generations and the common good of society there will be no chance of creating a Sustainable Earth.
