Internet freedom, human rights, trust, transparency and youth programs were just a few of the issues discussed at the 2012 COMMIT!Forum this past October in New York City. The speakers –CEOs, government leaders, policy-makers and heads of non-profit organizations – noted in the follow-up interviews that the Forum allowed them to engage the 700-person audience in how important these issues are to business leaders and their stakeholders.
Kyoto. Montreal. Durban. Rio.Venerable cities all, but, with the exception of Rio (only because it hasn’t happened yet), each is also synonymous with failure. Failure to get consensus on the future of the environment and sustainable development.
But why? When I speak with individual business and government leaders a broad consensus exists on the need for action. The barrier seems to be politics. So let’s by-pass the politics. To do that, though, we need a different kind of collective-action—one based on science and grounded in data.

I looked it up...on the Internet...using my broadband connection.
In this second installment of our Ethical Dilemmas Series, Kevin Moss puts forward a Justice vs. Mercy dilemma. When a colleague crosses the line should you enforce the rules or look with mercy on a transgressor? As a CRO do you have a special obligation that goes beyond that of the average executive?
Help us test our draft Ethics Code by playing out this scenario in your own mind and giving us your feedback. Or join us at CRO Summit for a live-fire exercise. Share how you'd resolve this dilemma and how the Ethics Code helped (or didn't).
