07 Jun 2004

In a speech at the United Nations, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Global CEO William G.

Parrett called on multinational corporations to establish and follow codes of conduct that transcend minimum compliance. He said that principled ethical behavior bolsters the rule of law and would therefore lead to expanded economic opportunities around the world. In a speech titled Globalisation's Next Frontier: Principled Codes of Conduct that Bolster the Rule of Law, Mr. Parrett told global ethics and business leaders, representatives from non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and academic institutions that globalisation and world security itself could be jeopardised unless multinational corporations develop ethical conduct that adheres to values and principles rather than just written law.
