This Easter God Calls You to Live Sustainably

 Posted April 23, 2011

Man as dominator.

Man as animal.

Man as parasite.

Man as steward.  


Four visions of humanity's relationship to nature. Which one you subscribe to has a lot to do with what you think God said to Adam in the Garden of Eden.  In Chapter One of the Book of Genesis, God says to Adam, "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth."

Posted October 4, 2010

Doctors have an ethics code. PR professionals, accountants, lawyers, ombudsman, engineers and ethics officers all have ethics codes.  In many ways, a well crafted ethics code defines a profession; it gives guidance to its practitioners to support the most taxing judgment calls they will have to make and articulates its defining values to those outside the profession. As the conscience of many organizations, it's time for Corporate Responsibility professionals to follow suit.

CROA's Professional Development Committee Chair calls CR professionals to define an ethics code.
