Ethical norms, and the institutions underwriting and giving force to them, can widen horizons and choices, enabling individuals to do more things than would have been possible in their absence. Trust and certainty in the integrity of market exchanges and interpersonal dealings are important social lubricants. In this respect, ethics might be thought of as a pure “public good.” The corollary of this new thinking about ethics is that corruption is corrosive, not only because it enables some in society to secure an unfair advantage over others; those engaging in corruption are harming us all by eroding norms and institutions that benefit us all. Declining morality in public life can set in train a cycle of decline. Insisting upon the maintenance of high standards in all facets of life—private and public—rightfully becomes a cornerstone of good governance.
In addition, corporate liability can be established and sanctioned at various levels—criminal, quasi-criminal (administrative) and civil—and be associated or derive from the liability of individuals who have acted in the name or on behalf of the company. Likewise, corporate liability can be established as an independent law violation or even as a crime, regardless of the commission of a separate crime by the individual. In addition, corporate liability is a growing threat to the reputation, profit and business image of global corporations. The adoption of adequate measures to prevent corporate liability has progressively become a legal and ethical duty, similar to corporate social responsibility, which corporations are expected to assume for the benefit of their stakeholders, customers and employees.
