THE Church of England has branched out into business ethics, with a two-day forum in Ely Cathedral next month.
Tony Juniper, executive director of environmental pressure group Friends of the Earth, will be one of the keynote speakers discussing "the purpose of prosperity" on March 22 and 23.
Tony, who lives in Cambridge, has mounted an effective critique of government and corporate policies regarding issues such as global warming, GM crops and conservation.
His presentation at the Business Ethics Forum will focus on modern economic ideas and their environmental impact.
Other speakers at this event include Neil Makin, external affairs director of Cadbury Schweppes and Andy Wales, group head of corporate responsibility, Severn Trent. The opening presenter will be Prem Sikka, a professor of accounting, whose seminar will be asking how prosperity can promote social and personal well-being, and identifying the factors that fight against this in the modern economy.
The Purpose of Prosperity is the second in a series of three business ethics forums at Ely Cathedral. It focuses on the ethics of enterprise and wealth creation and examines the values that organisations and businesses uphold regarding the wider community and the environment.
