Code of ethics

  1. 1. Ethics Ethics is also known as moral philosophy which is a branch of philosophy that addresses questions about morality that deals with concepts such as good and evil, right and wrong, virtue and vice, justice, etc.
  2. 2. Major branches of ethics  Meta-ethics: The theoretical meaning and reference of moral propositions and how their truth-values (if any) may be determined.  Normative ethics: The practical means of determining a moral course of action.  Applied ethics: It is about how moral outcomes can be achieved in specific situations.  Moral psychology: It is about how moral capacity or moral agency develops and what its nature is.  Descriptive ethics: It is about what moral values people actually abide by.
  3. 3. Ethical Code An ethical code is adopted by an organization in an attempt to assist those in the organization called upon to make a decision. Usually most understand the difference between 'right' and 'wrong' and to apply this understanding to their decision.
  4. 4. Corporate Or Business Ethics It focuses on social issues involving the organization. It sets out general principles about an organization's beliefs on matters such as aims, quality, privacy and the environment. It may delineate proper procedures to determine whether a violation of the code of ethics has occurred and if so, what remedies should be imposed.
  5. 5. Employee Ethics The effectiveness of such codes of ethics depends on the extent to which management supports them with sanctions and reward.  Violations of a private organization's code of ethics usually can subject the violator to the organization's remedies.

  8. 8. Fashion Code of Ethics •There is an emerging code of ethics making its way through the fashion industry. This global movement is gaining momentum. • Designers, manufacturers and distributors are addressing ethical concerns such as the fur debate, outsourcing, environmental impact, global trade and fashion-inspired body-image disorders.
  9. 9. Global Action In 2006, the fashion industry in Italy embraced an informal code of ethics aimed at fighting anorexia and bulimia. Stylists, agents and photographers within the region signed unofficial agreements to not use under-age models and beefed up the model size for runway shows. Regulations & Guidelines In the United States, fashion is an industry with few regulations. Compliance with minimum wage affects onshore production which spurred the industry to head offshore. Underage labour is illegal in the United States, causing the bulk of American designers to move production elsewhere. Fashion, like most industries, is governed by profit.
  10. 10. Consumer Impact Companies involved in fashion are aware, however, of public opinion and its potential impact on their profit line. In the 1980s and '90s when consumer approval of fur dropped, fur sales vanished. Fashion learned a pricey lesson. Its response to consumer concerns is the emerging fashion code of ethics. Affiliates E. T. I. or the Ethical Trade Initiative has created a Global Sourcing Marketplace to ensure fashion designers and manufacturers have access to an ethical supply chain. Eco Fashion World uses its website to spotlight small designers and artisans who abide the rules of fair trade.

Rules of etiquette Rules of etiquette encompass most aspects of social interaction in any society, though the term itself is not commonly used. A rule of etiquette may reflect an underlying ethical code, or it may reflect a person's fashion or status. Rules of etiquette are usually unwritten, but aspects of etiquette have been codified from time to time.
  16. 16. Manners  Some such individuals consider etiquette to be an unnecessary restriction of freedom of personal expression; others consider such a philosophy to be espoused only by the unschooled, the unmannerly and the rude. Others feel that a single, basic code shared by all makes life simpler and more pleasant by removing many chances for misunderstandings and by creating opportunities for courtesy and mutual respect.
  17. 17. Western office and business etiquette  The etiquette of business is the set of written and unwritten rules of conduct that make social interactions run more smoothly. Office etiquette in particular applies to co-worker interaction, excluding interactions with external contacts such as customers and suppliers.  Both office and business etiquette overlap considerably with basic tenets of netiquette, the social conventions for using computer networks.
  18. 18. India is also incorporating the western Business Etiquettes in its corporate sectors.
  19. 19. Cultural differences Etiquette can vary widely between different cultures and nations. In China, a person who takes the last item of food from a common plate or bowl without first offering it to others at the table may be seen as a glutton and insulting the generosity of the host. In America a guest is expected to eat all of the food given to them, as a compliment to the quality of the cooking.
