The fourth edition of Canadian Business and Society: Ethics, Responsibilities and Sustainability has been published in print and as an e-book.

Previous editions have been adopted a colleges and universities across Canada.

The book, written by Dr. Robert W. Sexty, professor emeritus in the Faculty of Business Administration at Memorial, examines the relationship between business and society and focuses on the ethics of business, corporate social responsibility, stakeholder theory, corporate sustainability, capitalism and ethics, and corporate citizenship. In addition, the regulatory, ecological and international environments are examined.

Canadian perspective

The book’s content emphasizes a Canadian perspective and is an indigenous text rather than a conversion of an American or European text.

Efforts have been taken to present materials, vignettes, example inserts and cases to which students can relate.

As students are the future business leaders and managers, Canadian Business and Society: Ethics, Responsibilities and Sustainability emphasizes the importance of students understanding the dynamic relationship between business and the ethics and responsibilities involved.

The book’s cover is a photograph by Dennis Flynn, a Newfoundland and Labrador author/photographer and Memorial University staff  member.
