Your support, both financial and intellectual, will help us to serve society by supporting organisations to have a positive impact on their stakeholders by applying their ethical values throughout their operations.

By supporting the IBE you will be joining a community of individuals and organisations committed to promoting high standards of business conduct based on ethical values.

Our Business Ethics Network (BEN) communities provide confidential forums for the promotion of good practice and the sharing of common challenges in the implementation of an effective organisational commitment to ethics.

Corporate ethics roles can be lonely places and our communities are considered by participants to be valuable safe spaces where peer-to-peer learning can take place through the sharing of experiences and stories. Through the IBE, many have found a friendly ear or an encouraging challenge to help them take their programmes to the next level.

Our relationships with our BEN communities also contribute significantly to the IBE's work programme by informing our priorities for future discussions, research, publications and events.
