‘My organisation promotes ethical behaviour but it doesn't always take priority’

‘We know that ethical behaviours are an important means of developing trust among stakeholders, and indeed, our corporate values espouse high standards of conduct’

‘On the one hand you need to set high standards, and be aspirational, but if there isn't complete conviction in the senior team it can actually undermine trust and create cynicism’

‘Compliance tends to be viewed as government interference by a lot of the Board. Ethics are seen as nice things to have as long as they don't get in the way of profits’
