Initially, it was a small scale of “profit-oriented” but then it evolves to immense scale of “profitoriented” as to achieve as much as possible high financial return. Evidences of businesses collapse indicate the business world is full with “greedy” and “corrupted” businessmen and practitioners. Therefore, it is recommended for the companies to embark on Corporate Ethical Governance and Accountability and to follow Applied Corporate Governance that view corporate governance not only on the aspect of structuring, operating and controlling but also with the purpose to achieve culture based on sound business ethics by concerning all stakeholders and by complying to all related regulations. The companies can carry out the utmost “best practices” of good corporate citizen through ethical culture.
