Summary
“Creating shared value” (CSV) appears on contemporary business agendas. But despite empirical evidence concerning its popularity, serious questions about the
logic of CSV are raised by scholars. This paper focuses on CSV in the Asian context. Using in-depth interviews with key informants from Japan, Korea, and India,
we employ a strategy-as-practice approach and develop propositions related to CSV in Asia. We identify three characteristics of Asian business practices that shape CSV in Asia: a survival sense, a strong ethical stance, and business-in-society dynamics. Finally, we introduce a preliminary framework for Asian CSV along with suggestions for future research and practice.

Summary
The importance of ethical decision-making in international business has never been more apparent than in recent years. However, discussion concerning its teaching to future global talents who will be at this stage soon is scant and under-developed. Adapting Rest’s (1986) four-component model, the study attempts to sketch a broad outline of ethical decision-making by university students when they face an ethical dilemma. The imaginary story, which the author intentionally designs to analyze ethical decision-making through covering real-world ethical issues in an international market, is used as the main methodological tool. Participants acknowledge ‘ideal’ ethical decisions according to their own discretion, but their ‘actual’ decision is different due to the intention (motivation) of individuals as to whether they make ethical decisions. This study demonstrates significant gaps in teaching business ethics and suggests a shift of the teaching focus from enlightenment of moral awareness/judgment to stimulating and motivating to initiate ethical decisions and actions.

Summary
This article investigates Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Asia through two related themes: research knowledge and ethical norms. ‘CSR in Asia’ research is shown to be growing, particularly in East Asia. Compared with Western CSR literature, it is shown to be dominated by empirical, particularly quantitative, research. More substantively, this research is dominated by an issue focus on ethical norms, though this is in real decline. In this light, this article offers a closer investigation of the nature of ethical systems underpinning Asian business, and a comparison of Asian and Western conceptions of the community as a stakeholder.

Summary
The different institutional contexts in which businesses practice corporate social responsibility (CSR) have led researchers to challenge the validity of the extant standardized global approach. This study follows recent studies in employing institutional theory to explore the specific pressures and factors that lead CSR practices to differ between countries, and how they lead to those differences. A detailed qualitative analysis is undertaken of CSR practice in South Korea, a country with very different value and governance systems from the US and UK where contemporary CSR evolved. Contrary to simplistic expectations, Korea shows a concern for short-termism more than for sustainability; and a normative more than a strategic orientation in its CSR, where it lies at a crossroads between implicit and explicit CSR behavior. The practices reflect many Korean institutional factors, but not in simple and direct ways. Institutional factors interact in intricate ways to create complex and dynamic pressures for CSR practice. CSR research needs to consider these interactions and dynamic processes with care and, in this, institutional theory can help provide a sufficiently intricate research framework.

Summary
This paper examines the importance of employee-centred Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) considerations in exploring CSR’s effect on employee work motivation. It is our contention that beyond CSR’s link to external factors (e.g. PR, philanthropy, environment and NGOs) predominantly discussed in theory and practice of contemporary business, we should also consider employee-centred CSR in searching for CSR identity in international business. By employing motivational factors drawing upon McClelland’s [1961] idea of three motives of individuals – the needs for achievement, affiliation and power – this paper highlights CSR’s impact on employee motivation. An in-depth qualitative research method approach with the extensive data of the UK and Korea is used to unfold the differences of this phenomenon between different institutional settings. The results suggest that although businesses seldom initiate CSR mainly with the aim of facilitating staff motivation, when businesses evaluate the results, the issue of individual motivation emerges as one of the main benefits for engaging in CSR. More importantly, our empirical analysis reveals the importance of complex cultural, institutional and political factors which influences the link between CSR and motivation across nations.

Summary
Banks in their role as financiers and business advisors can strongly impact the economy and the environment. From a triple bottom line perspective, profits and financial success alone are insufficient. Banks are increasingly being evaluated on ethical and sustainability performance, and avoidance of environmental damage. This article details our research on the business potential of ethical banking, green banking and green loan initiatives, incorporating both the demand and supply perspectives.
Participants were senior bankers and stakeholders (Study 1), managers of 169 corporations (Study 2), and 203 heads of households (Study 3). Qualitative and quantitative methods were utilised. In-depth interviews with senior bankers and stakeholders revealed primary motivations, drivers of sustainability, conceptualisation of green and ethical banking, and the challenges faced.
Over 60% of individuals’ and corporate respondents’ banking decisions were influenced by ethical and green banking. Additionally, two in five corporations reported a positive intention to apply for green loans, particularly larger enterprises, Multinational Companies (MNCs), and organisations with existing sustainable practices or policies. For heads of households, the following green banking initiatives were important: online banking, the availability of green car loan packages, and banks’ support of local environmental initiatives and human development projects.
The results revealed a strong demand from both corporations and individuals for ethical banking, green banking, and initiatives such as green loans. Banks can thus create greater public awareness regarding their ethical practices, introduce and promote green banking initiatives, and provide leadership in the area of sustainability. Recommendations are provided on how banks can enhance green loan schemes.
