Business Ethics and Social Responsibility



RESPONSIBLE CORPORATIONS? DIESELGATE

A sobering case study in unethical behaviour at the heart of the auto industry.

  • Corporate Ethics
  • The Car Industry
  • Cars and Pollution
  • Diesel Technology

  • 'Dieselgate' is the scandal that made world headlines when, in the USA in 2015, Volkswagen were discovered to have installed defeat devices in the pollution control software of their diesel cars. Although the cars conformed to emission standards in laboratory tests, on the road, in actual driving conditions, emissions were off the chart. VW were forced to buy back vehicles from American customers - resulting in 'VW graveyards' of new cars across the US. Compensation and fines amounted to over $20 billion.

    But the scandal has far more important ramifications outside the USA, where less than 2% of vehicles are diesel-powered. Diesel is a technology originating in Europe, where there are millions of cars - and the implications for air pollution are far more serious. As one campaigner says: 'People don't see the victims, but they're there.'

    And the fault, it seems, is not just with Volkswagen. French manufacturers PSA Group (owners of the Peugeot and Citroen brands) and Renault are also in the spotlight.

    Dieselgate is a sobering case study in the way corporations will cynically look to use any trick - at the expense of its customers and public health - to maintain profits and market share.

    RESPONSIBLE CORPORATIONS? APPLE, NEWS CORP & GOOGLE

    This film looks at three famous companies in the world of media and technology and explores the ethics of their approach to business.

    APPLE has amazing products, but they're made by people in China who work long hours for small wages. Some workers have even killed themselves: the "Foxconn Suicides". Apple now monitors its suppliers for compliance with its standards - but is this enough?

    NEWS CORP is a global media empire with famous brands like the Sun and Fox News. Founder Rupert Murdoch was once praised for taking on the print unions and he wielded huge power over society and politicians. But his papers have been criticised for promoting racism and homophobia. Now the hacking scandal has shaken his empire to the core. Is there an alternative to big companies controlling our media?

    GOOGLE: Launched in a dorm room by two students, Google is now a massive global success story. But has it been TOO successful? Does it have too much of our personal information? And how do we know what they're going to do with it? Britain's Information Commission Officer explains his concerns.

    RESPONSIBLE CORPORATIONS? BAE SYSTEMS

    Multinational BAE Systems make everything from aircraft to missiles and big profits.They make big profits,create skilled jobs and use cutting edge technology. But is it in an immoral business?

    GLOBAL BUSINESS:
    Originally formed from a merger of British aviation companies in the 1970s, BAE was originally called British Aerospace. Now it's ditched the British title and goes for global sales. 47% of its business comes from the US and 29% from the UK. The key objection critics make against BAE is that they're arming over 100 countries around the world. And in countries like Bahrain BAE's weapons are used to subdue pro-democracy demonstrations.

    CORRUPTION:
    It's also been accused of corruption in its business dealings. In 2004 the UK's Serious Fraud Office started investigating BAE for paying bribes to win contracts in Saudia Arabia. But the prime minister at the time Tony Blair closed the investigation down, saying Britain's "strategic interest" came first. In Tanzania, too, BAE was involved in a corruption scandal and even tried to withhold compensation payments it was ordered to pay to the country.

    SOURCE OF JOBS?
    BAE is praised for creating jobs - but critics claim the British tax payer is subsidising those jobs. Much of the money spent on research and development which benefits the arms industry comes from the public purse, too. Some say the money would be better spent on other areas, such as green technology. BAE has also been accused of being too close to the UK government, with former civil servants and ex-ministers regularly coming to work for them: the "revolving door syndrome". BAE's supporters say we need an arms industry to defend ourselves. Critics say making arms is immoral.

    RESPONSIBLE CORPORATIONS? PRIMARK, RBS, THE DRUGS INDUSTRY

    This film looks at the ethics of three internationally known corporations. How responsible are they in terms of the environment, of our health and the way they treat the people who work for them?

    PRIMARK
    Primark is one of the most well known shops on our high streets. They sell cheap, fast fashion at low prices. But what does this mean for the people in poor countries who make the clothes? The pressure to be fast and cheap means low wages, overtime and even, it's been alleged, child labour. But, following protests and controversy, the company now claims it's cleaning up its act and taking ethics seriously.

    PFIZER
    Big drug companies like Pfizer make products essential for the health of the world - and huge profits. But how ethical is their approach to business? The film tells stories of doctors being bribed, botched drug trials in developing world countries and the over-pricing of drugs people badly need but can't afford to buy.

    ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND
    Since it almost went bust in 2008 the Royal Bank of Scotland has been mostly owned by the British government. But we have no say in the projects it finances. Many of these are environmentally controversial. They involve large scale fossil fuel operations, including get coal by mountaintop removal and drilling for oil in the Canadian tar sands. RBS has met objections and campaigns with "green wash" and refuses to change its ways.

    RESPONSIBLE CORPORATIONS? THE SOCIAL COST OF THE CIGARETTE BUSINESS

    Multinational companies are aggressively marketing cigarettes to young people in developing countries - with devastating social costs.

    This film visits Indonesia where low taxes and lax laws have turned the country into the third largest market for tobacco products in the world. Targeted by the industry's relentless marketing, Indonesians start young and die young.

    "If I'd known I'd get this disease I would have quit a long time ago." Ujang has terminal lung cancer. At 45, he is the victim of a habit, which is killing millions in his country. Most Indonesians don't believe that smoking is bad for their health and the industry shamelessly cashes in on their ignorance.

    The marketing strategies of cigarette companies play a major role in a massive national habit. Among men, almost 70% light up every day. That's about 80 million smokers.

    The behaviour of giant tobacco companies like Philip Morris and British American Tobacco are attacked as blatant breaches of corporate social responsibility.

    Sampoerna, one of Indonesia's big three tobacco giants, was bought in 2005 by the world's largest tobacco corporation, Philip Morris International, creators of Marlboro and the Marlboro Man.

    Over the years, Sampoerna's products could be credited with millions of premature deaths.

    "Indonesia is a rogue state when it comes to tobacco control", claims David Stanford of Indonesia's Consumers Federation. ""Philip Morris is one of the most brilliant marketers in the world.

    In a place like Indonesia what they're doing is they're making tobacco use a form of Western independence and growth."

    Internal Philip Morris documents reveal the company's strategy. They want to entice young Indonesians to sample their deadly wares - and get them hooked.

    DOING WELL AND DOING GOOD: CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AS A PROFIT GENERATOR

    Featuring: Jeffrey Swartz

    Program Highlights
  • Altruism, and the building of the Timberland brand.
  • A vision that defines work not only as what we do, but also as who we are.
  • The benefits of shared values and a common commitment to mission.

  • In an age when consumers and investors alike are gravitating toward companies whose brands they can trust, it's no longer enough to be solely focused on the bottom line. Delivering more than $1.3 billion in sales last year, Timberland is proof that profit-minded companies can build on their success while both "doing well" for shareholders and "doing good" for communities.

    Jeff Swartz firmly believes in commerce, and that profits for Wall Street are necessary--but not sufficient. He also believes in commitment: to the basic human rights of everyone involved in the Timberland value chain; to minimizing Timberland's impact on the environment; and to the notion of engaged citizenship, that encourages us to take the resources we have and find the will to create sustainable solutions that are good for everybody.

    Jeffrey Swartz is the third generation of the Swartz family to lead Timberland. Under his direction, the company that his grandfather founded, along with the brand his father built, has grown to become an example for socially-responsible corporations around the world. Jeffrey received an MBA from Dartmouth and a BA in comparative literature from Brown.
