Ethics and The Power of One
Ethics and integrity are at the heart of the professional responsibilities of ICAS members.
Through their ethical behaviour, CAs are a force for good in the organisations in which they work. They can also influence those around them, and thereby help shape the culture and values of their organisation.
The cumulative effect of their influence can help reinforce the importance of ethics at the core of business practices and of a more responsible and holistic approach to business. In this way, CAs are a key component of building public trust in business, to the benefit of our broader society.
In November 2015, ICAS launched its business ethics initiative: The Power of One.
The Power of One calls on all CAs to place ethical leadership at the heart of their professional responsibilities, to shape the culture and values of their organisations, to help re-establish ethics at the core of business practices and to rebuild public trust in business.
In turn, ICAS committed to providing new resources and support for members on ethics.
