Please join us at Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business on August 19, 2013 for a discussion on business ethics with renowned professors Klaus Leisinger and Josef Wieland, leading experts and contributors in the field of business ethics and corporate social responsibility. Led by Honorary CKGSB Professor Tu Weiming, the discussion will explore business ethics from the cultural, ethical and economic perspectives of experts from both China and Germany.

The dialogue will be conducted in English with simultaneous Chinese interpretation.


Topic and background 
Today, there is a widespread perception within China that the country faces a morality crisis, with shocking examples of corruption, immorality and neglect appearing in both traditional and social media on an almost daily basis. Confucius used to define such situations as “礼崩乐坏” (lǐbēng yuèhuài): an expression that signals a moral crisis caused by the collapse of tradition and rituals. During this event, we shall deal with the role of business in such a moral environment, and more specifically, how the business elite is affected, or is affecting, morality in contemporary China.
Despite their great financial success in recent years, some Chinese entrepreneurs and business leaders have felt that something is missing from their businesses and activities. They lack purpose. Mission. What are the root causes for this? 
In German culture, rigorousness, discipline and diligence are often upheld as the core values of good business. How do such values affect the idea of corporate social responsibility in a German company, and how effectively are they upheld? What factors do German entrepreneurs base their decision-making on besides financial considerations? Do they face the same issues as their Chinese counterparts?
