About the Business Ethics Network

Corporations have gained immense rights that were never intended for them. They have used their wealth to exert influence over who we elect and how they govern, and as a result, have been able to aggressively pursue their profits with little or no consideration for the people and our planet. We believe it is more important than ever to challenge corporate abuse and transform corporations' role in our society.

What We Do

The Business Ethics Network is a project of Corporate Ethics International, whose mission is to bring corporations back in service to and under the control of the citizenry. To serve this mission, BEN works to build the capacity of leading NGOs engaged in corporate campaigns and shareholder activism by facilitating collaboration, providing education and consultation, and increasing recognition of campaign successes with the funding community and the public.
