Participation in 5th International Ethics Summit in Istanbul

The Basel Institute supported the 5th International Ethics Summit ‘Understanding Today, Inspiring Tomorrow’, hosted by the Turkish organisation TEID in Istanbul on 17 June 2015.

The conference was dedicated to discussing how concepts such as responsible citizenship, sustainable production, innovation, ethics and reputation can be integrated into a successful company alongside making profits for shareholders.

Some 250 interested participants from the private and public sectors joined this discussion led by leading Turkish and international officials and business leaders.

Gemma Aiolfi, Head of Corporate Governance, Compliance & Collective Action at the Basel Institute, spoke at the conference on creating positive incentives for companies to implement comprehensive anti-corruption risk prevention programmes, and about Collective Action as an innovative tool to implement ethical business conduct in exposed sectors.
