In search of a common ethical ground: Corporate environmental responsibility from the perspective of Christian environmental stewardship

Journal of Business Ethics 16 (2):173-181 (1997)
Abstract
In recent years, corporate environmental policies have become urgently needed, demanded by influential environmentalist groups and launched by an increasing number of companies. Those demands and efforts, however, often lack an ethical underpinning. This paper deals with some basic ethical issues and outlines three perspectives for further investigation: How can we take into account ethical pluralism that characterizes most contemporary societies?; What is the content of environmental ethics viewed from a Christian perspective, taken as an example of various existent doctrines in the pluralistic world?; and What relevance may this "Christian environmental stewardship " have for the understanding of corporate environmental responsibility?
