Caux Round Table's Global Executive Director Makes Case for CRT Business Principles in Europe Caux Round Table's Global Executive Director Makes Case for CRT Business Principles in Europe

The Caux Round Table's Global Executive Director, Steve Young, recently visited several countries in Eastern and Southeastern Europe to discuss our organization and work, specifically our Principles for Business.  

The financial crisis has focused many peoples' attention on the need for values and standards of behavior in business decision-making, even in places less hard hit by the crisis.  In Belgrade, Steve spoke at a conference of managers associations from Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia and Montenegro held to discuss a new concept called the "Yugo-sphere" which has been suggested as a cultural means of promoting regional cooperation among the peoples of the former Yugoslavia around shared values and behaviors.

While in Zagreb, Steve spoke with the Croatian Managers Association about using the financial crisis as an opportunity to build support for, and commitment to, business ethics. 

Perhaps the most significant development to come out of the trip was the translation into Romanian of our book, Moral Capitalism.  The book, based on our Principles for Business, argues for a code of ethics that sets consistent and attainable worldwide guidelines for how business can behave responsibly and ethically.
