Questions: Read the case, The OK Tedi Copper Mine (see below )
Firstly, explain and discuss each of the five theories listed above.
Secondly, use each of these theories to highlight ethics issues that need to be addressed in evaluating from an ethical perspective, the decisions made by both BHP and the government of Papua New Guinea.
Finally, what conclusions can you draw about business ethics in theory and practice?
It is recommended that you integrate the application into the theory section of your essay, e.g., after explaining and discussing utilitarianism, immediately discuss ethics issues regarding the case from a utilitarian perspective, rather than having all the application at the end of the essay. However, either way is an option.
