Business and companies can use the ethical decision to assure their businesses by making decisions that allow government agencies to minimize their involvement with the corporation.
Nowadays, social responsibility has received some normative status related to private and public corporations in the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights, for example, developed by the UNESCO International Bioethics Committee particularly, is related to child and maternal welfare. The International Organization for Standardization wants to encourage voluntary commitment to social responsibility and will take the societies to common definitions, guidance on concepts, and methods of evaluation. The normative status describes itself as a guide for dialogue and language, not a constraining management standard.
