80% of Businesses have felt pressure to act unethically 

    Four out of five businesses worldwide have committed to ethical performance, but rhetoric does not always match reality, according to a report from the American Institute of CPAs and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.  Managing Responsible Business, a survey of almost 2,000 Chartered Global Management Accountants (CGMA) in nearly 80 countries, found a weakened “tone from the top” and more pressure on financial professionals – especially in emerging economies — to act unethically.

    The AICPA and CIMA recently released an ethical management checklist to help executives effectively embed sound ethical practices in their businesses. To speak to someone about the ways in which CGMA’s are helping to foster an ethical business environment, contact Jonathan B. Cox at 919-402-4499, or jcox@aicpa.org.
