Summary This chapter initially examines the motivations for the adoption of codes, the frequency of use and the likely content, including those for use in the international context. This is then followed by a discussion of the criticisms of codes as well as the indicators of their effectiveness. The chapter concludes with an examination of the more pragmatic dimensions associated with the implementation, the enforcement, the influence of corporate culture and leadership.
