Discover why doing business ethically really can pay

Commercial pressure has too often been cited as justification for unethical business behaviour. Yet increasingly, consumers are choosing to do business with those they believe to be ethical. What exactly is ethical business? How can we influence it as business leaders or as consumers?

Norwich Cathedral, in partnership with Norwich Quakers and the RSA are staging a debate on business ethics at OPEN Norwich. This free to attend event, chaired by the Dean of Norwich, the Very Revd Janes Hedges, has speakers from Quakers in Britain, East of England Cooperative Society and local investment specialists Investing Ethically.

Also speaking will be Loughlin Hickey, co-founder of charity Blueprint for Better Business.

"Too many people accept that success in business requires all to pursue their own self-interest. Not only is that a narrow view of human instincts but it actually blocks business potential. What I and the other speakers will do is to show how moving beyond self-interest, to our human instincts to collaborate towards a common good, can unleash untapped potential for business and society to prosper together." Loughlin Hickey.

Both the Quaker and cooperative movement have a history of doing business ethically. Attend this event and you will leave understanding how you can help make business more ethical.
