ICAEW believes that integrity is fundamental to ethical behaviour. Ethical behaviour is not just a matter of concern and media debate but of crucial importance to individuals, organisations and markets.

Efficient and effective markets will have as their foundations participants that can trust and be trusted, accepted standards of behaviour and mechanisms which influence and are influenced by behaviour.

Some of the issues which are being explored in the Market Foundations thought leadership initiative include:

  • Characteristics associated with ethical behaviour
  • Similarities, differences and inter-relationships between ethical behaviour and integrity
  • Factors and frameworks influencing decision-making process
  • How do organisations influence and promote ethical behaviour
  • The role of professions in promoting, supporting and reinforcing ethical behaviour
