  3. David Nitkin & Leonard J. Brooks (1998). Sustainability Auditing and Reporting: The Canadian Experience. [REVIEW] Journal of Business Ethics 17 (13):1499-1507.
    This paper reviews the experience of 174 of Canada's largest 1500 public and private sector corporations which have begun to incorporate sustainable development management and reporting as part of their operations. Answers are provided to three main questions: Why have they implemented this initiative?

  4. Leonard J. Brooks (1997). Business Ethics in Canada: Distinctiveness and Directions. [REVIEW] Journal of Business Ethics 16 (6):591-604.
    This article examines the pressures and players that have shaped business ethics in Canadian corporations, and reports on the status of Canadian corporate social performance in 1995. Business in Canada has not been subject, up to 1996, to a powerful national institutional framework such as the US Securities and Exchange Commission and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Consequently, business ethics in Canada have developed primarily in response to broader socio-political and socio-economic factors than in the US, and will probably continue (...)

  6. Leonard J. Brooks (1989). Corporate Codes of Ethics. Journal of Business Ethics 8 (2-3):117 - 129.
    The majority of North American corporations awakened to the need for their own ethical guidelines during the late 1970s and early 1980s, even though modern corporations are subject to a surprising multiplicity of external codes of ethics or conduct. This paper provides an understanding of both internal and external codes through a discussion of the factors behind the development of the codes, an analysis of internal codes and an identification of problems with them.

  7. Leonard J. Brooks (1989). Ethical Codes of Conduct: Deficient in Guidance for the Canadian Accounting Profession. [REVIEW] Journal of Business Ethics 8 (5):325 - 335.
    Current trends toward increased pace, more complex substance and lower tolerance of error have caused the financial marketplace to rely more heavily on the integrity of financial data and, therefore, of those who prepare the financial statements. At the same time, these trends place higher challenges before professional accountants and it is essential that they have excellent ethical guidance to live up to modern expectations. However, in view of the current codes of conduct, an accountant may not have a clear (...)
