Howard Whitton (2009). Organisational ethics policies: A primer. Bergen: Chr. Michelsen Institute (U4 Brief 2009:4)

Most people are familiar with codes of conduct. Often overlooked, however, is the important role that organisational ethics policies have not only as the backbone for such strategies but also for more general policies - such as transparent accounting and non-discriminatory human resources practices - related to the ethical performance of an organisation. This U4 Brief describes the different dimensions of ethics policies and outlines elements of good practice in developing and implementing them.
