This seminar will explore the drivers, challenges and benefits of developing a corporate ethics programme, using the background of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill in 2010.

The speaker (an Ethics and Compliance professional, and former employee with BP in the UK) will consider the influence of business ethics on managing incidents, and the potential impacts of a major incident on an ethics programme, basing the discussion on publicly available information.

The presentation will use business ethics as the viewpoint to review the response activities observed, the remediations’ that were carried out, and the long-term outcomes from the incident.
