Co-founded by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the International Leadership Symposium on Ethics in Business is an initiative of The World Fo­rum for Ethics in Business, a registered public interest foundation with the aim to pursue and establish the indispensable ethical foundations of business in a globalized world.

The Conference, in which the World Bank Institute and the International Association for Human Values are partnering organisations, is an annual event which brings together prominent leaders from business, politics, academia, civil society and faith‐based organizations to dialogue on the pressing need to strengthen human values and ethics in business and to dialogue on new leadership styles that support inclusive and sustainable development and ensure profitability for businesses. It provides a platform for leading minds to share their expe­riences and expertise on the value of an ethics-based approach to deal with today’s challenges in the global markets. It also examines the impact of this approach on the bottom line.

The recipients of the WFEB Ethics in Business Award, which honours individuals and companies that have demonstrated the importance of ethics in life and in the business arena, will also be announced at the Conference.

Over the past six years, Nobel Laureates, political leaders and top executives from global companies such as Microsoft Corporation, Coca Cola, Infosys, ING Bank, GMR Group, Daimler AG and Tata Services have participated in this event.

The 2012 Conference is the eighth conference in the series, and the sixth to be held at the European Parliament.


Putting ethics in business and human values in the spotlight

The theme of this year’s Conference, Capitalism – but not reloaded?!  - A systemic crisis and its consequences” stems from the need to reconsider leadership styles and strategies in the face of the ongoing social and economic challenges worldwide. In particular, the Conference will examine new leadership styles that are sustainable and ensure profitability for businesses, and explore whether business and ethics are complementary or contradic­tory. It will provide a platform for leading minds to share their experiences on the value of an ethics based approach to deal with today’s challenges. In these most challenging times, is the focus on human values and ethics an indispensable key to overcoming the current crises and avoiding future crises? What is the leader­ship style that can pave the way for a sustainable future?
