Business ethics are the principles and standards that establish acceptable manner of doing things in the business environment. The extent to which a certain behavior is acceptable is determined by government regulatory bodies, consumers, interest groups, competitors, and the general public, as well as every person’s private moral values and beliefs (Ferrell & Fraedrich. 2015). According to consumer and social ambassadors, organizations must not only produce profit but also put into consideration the social impacts of their activities. Most basic ethical issues have been set as laws and guidelines that inspire businesses to adhere to community’s values, principles, and attitudes. At a bare minimum, business leaders have an obligation to follow these guidelines and regulations. Many litigation matters come up as choices that society considers unethical, unacceptable, or otherwise irresponsible. The case study of Samarco dam collapse presents ethical problems that the company did not address thus leading to the disaster that claimed lives and wanton destruction of property.
