The Effect Of Environmental Performance, Carbon Emissions On Corporate Financial Performance With Code Of Conduct as a Moderating VariableThis study examines the relationship between the issue of environmental performance and carbon emissions on company performance with a code of conduct as a moderating variable. Weather variability in many regions, including Indonesia, has an adverse impact on health in the long term. The strong commitment of the Government of Indonesia has been conveyed in the Paris Agreement and realized with Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) 29% with its efforts and international support is expected to reduce carbon emissions by 41% in 2030. This commitment is realized by updating Indonesia's NDC by adding the marine and fisheries sector. The effect of environmental performance and Carbon Emissions on the Company's Financial Performance with a moderated Code of Conduct is 49.5%, and 50.5% is influenced by other factors not observed in this study. The Code of Conduct does not have a significant effect directly on the Company's Financial Performance. Develop an operating model of environmental performance in management, and companies can keep the company alive without sacrificing the survival of humanity by reducing these carbon emissions on Earth. This study discusses the difficulties associated with environmental performance, carbon emissions, and codes of conduct in the context of intentional research in management. It offers novel insights into the transformations that firms and management principles and practices should undergo to mitigate irreversible environmental harm.
How American Nurses Association Code of Ethics informs genetic/genomic nursingMembers of the Ethics and Public Policy Committee of the International Society of Nurses in Genetics prepared this article to assist nurses in interpreting the American Nurses Association (2015) Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements (Code) within the context of genetics/genomics. The Code explicates the nursing profession's norms and responsibilities in managing ethical issues. The nearly ubiquitous application of genetic/genomic technologies in healthcare poses unique ethical challenges for nursing. Therefore, authors conducted literature searches that drew from various professional resources to elucidate implications of the code in genetic/genomic nursing practice, education, research, and public policy. We contend that the revised Code coupled with the application of genomic technologies to healthcare creates moral obligations for nurses to continually refresh their knowledge and capacities to translate genetic/genomic research into evidence-based practice, assure the ethical conduct of scientific inquiry, and continually develop or revise national/international guidelines that protect the rights of individuals and populations within the context of genetics/genomics. Thus, nurses have an ethical responsibility to remain knowledgeable about advances in genetics/genomics and incorporate emergent evidence into their work.
The value-free ideal in codes of conduct for research integrityWhile the debate on values in science focuses on normative questions on the level of the individual (e.g. should researchers try to make their work as value free as possible?), comparatively little attention has been paid to the institutional and professional norms that researchers are expected to follow. To address this knowledge gap, we conduct a content analysis of leading national codes of conduct for research integrity of European countries, and structure our analysis around the question: do these documents allow for researchers to be influenced by “non-epistemic” (moral, cultural, commercial, political, etc.) values or do they prohibit such influence in compliance with the value-free ideal (VFI) of science? Our results return a complex picture. On the one hand, codes of conduct consider many non-epistemic values to be a legitimate influence on the decision-making of researchers. On the other, most of these documents include what we call VFI-like positions: passages claiming that researchers should be free and independent from any external influence. This shows that while many research integrity documents do not fully endorse the VFI, they do not reject it and continue to be implicitly influenced by it. This results in internal tensions and underdetermined guidance on non-epistemic values, that may limit some of the uses of research integrity codes, especially for purposes of ethical self-regulation. While codes of conduct cannot be expected to decide how researchers should act in every instance, we do suggest that they acknowledge the challenges of how to integrate non-epistemic values in research in a more explicit fashion.

ICOH International Code of Ethics for Occupational Health Professionals : Historical fortune and future perspectives in ItalyThe Working Group responsible for the Italian translation of the third edition of the International Code of Ethics, appointed by the President of the International Commission on Occupational Health (ICOH), Dr. Jukka Takala, completed last April the revision work. The final text, already available on the ICOH website, has been printed and distributed by the Italian National Institute for Insurance against Accidents at Work (INAIL) at the 79th National Congress of the Italian Society of Occupational Medicine and Industrial Hygiene (SIMLII), in Rome. The curators of this third Italian edition have accomplished the delicate task of adaptation in Italian, taking into account the specificities of the practice of medicine in the Italian work environment. It involves many professionals with diverse roles and responsibilities in the public and private sectors for safety, hygiene, health and environment in relation to work. More than twenty years after the first Italian edition, we trace the evolution of the ICOH International Code of Ethics, in order to focus its birth, national and international distribution, and continuous improvement as well as its ability to direct the stakeholders towards a participatory prevention model, in a legislative framework that has seen over the past two decades a radical change in the Italian world of work.
On culture, ethics and hierarchy: How cultural variations in hierarchical relations are manifested in the code of ethics of British and Korean organizationsThe present research examined if cultural differences in the extent to which hierarchical relations dictate individuals’ behaviors are embedded in objective institutional regulations. Using quantitative and qualitative analysis, we examined codes of ethics of Korean and British organizations in relation to working relationships and corruptive behaviors. We found that, unlike British organizations, Korean organizations endorsed codes of ethics that place greater emphasis on hierarchical relations and contained prescriptions for individuals occupying senior or junior ranks. Ethical codes also appeared to be geared more towards preventing the abuse of power in Korean organizations compared with British organizations. Finally, unlike British organizations, Korean organizations often permitted top-down exchanges (not bottom-up exchanges), suggesting that in upper echelons benevolence may be more normative in Korean organizations than in British organizations.

Del Código Ético a la Convención Internacional. Un panorama crítico de la Organización Mundial del Turismo desde la perspectiva del cosmopolitismoEste trabajo aborda una revisión crítica de la naturaleza del orden cosmopolita que impulsa la Organización Mundial del Turismo. Ante el crecimiento de la actividad turística y de los retos que plantea, este organismo especializado de la Organización de las Naciones Unidas ha promovido formalmente el desarrollo equitativo, responsable y sostenible del turismo. Sin embargo, la crítica a los principios desde los que esta organización modela el turismo ha puesto en el punto de mira los objetivos que persigue. La conversión de esos principios, recogidos en el Código Ético Mundial para el Turismo, adoptado en 1999, en una convención internacional, aprobada en septiembre de 2017, plantea un nuevo escenario que este trabajo esboza desde la perspectiva del cosmopolitismo.
Analysis of professional perceptions relating to the effectiveness of codes of ethics for journalists in SpainCodes of ethics are important instruments in journalism, as they promote transparency and selfregulation of media, in addition to monitoring the quality of information. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the perceptions that Spanish journalists have of the effectiveness of codes of ethics and to evaluate the different personal and professional variables which condition this vision.
Redescubrimiendo los códigos de conducta para la ISP médica. Cultura, dilemas y papel profesional.Los códigos deontológicos, en cuanto cristalización de la ética profesional de los intérpretes médicos, han sido objeto de críticas y alabanzas, pero son más bien escasos los análisis profundos de estos documentos, a pesar de que algunas cuestiones como el papel profesional o la gestión de las diferencias culturales siguen estando en el centro del debate académico. Este estudio analiza los códigos éticos más visibles en la ISP médica a la luz de dos temas: la comunicación intercultural, a fin de identificar si los textos proponen un papel profesional que tiene en cuenta la función mediadora intercultural y, en ese caso, extraer las competencias interculturales que se concreten; y los dilemas morales, extraídos de textos externos a la muestra, para determinar si los documentos analizados resultan aplicables a esos dilemas y, por tanto, útiles en ese sentido.
