Two words I never thought would come together when it comes to Lebanese businesses:

Non-profit organization Bicharaf has concluded Business Ethics Roundtable discussions with leading businesses in Beirut, Lebanon.

Great! It’s about time that local business learn how to operate ethically.

In a roundtable that took place on February 26 at the American University of Beirut, business leaders analyzed ethical behavior within four quadrants: Legal / Illegal and Ethical / Unethical. They then shared their personal experiences and provided detailed recommendations for how companies in the region can foster an ethical environment in the workplace.

So which home-grown business took part in this event?

Company representatives attended from, Business Unlimited, Deloitte & Touche Middle East, Ernst & Young, IDM, Lebanese Ministry of Economy & Trade, MEFOSA, Procter & Gamble, Roadster Diner, and White Mountain Technologies.

Not many apparently.
