Ethics is the foundation on which the edifice of good corporate governance rests. Ethics is what we consider as right and wrong in terms of rights, obligations, and benefits to society, fairness, or specific virtues. Ethical standards also cover virtues of honesty, compassion, and loyalty. These standards are adequate as they are based upon consistent and well- founded reasoning. Therefore it is necessary to constantly examine one’s standards to ensure that they are reasonable and well founded.
