Ethical considerations in export of hazardous products to institutionally vulnerable countries

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Abstrakt

The article focuses on transnational companies’ downstream export of hazardous products to vulnerable countries and the use of the products in those countries. The article uses pesticides as case of hazardous products and identifies mechanisms in the downstream management of a Danish pesticide company in vulnerable countries with a special focus on Brazil. The identified ethical considerations are related to: The transnational company’s interpretation of its regulatory and ethical obligations for development and use of its hazardous products in vulnerable countries, path dependency and path creation in the business strategy, geographical and organisational coverage of its management systems and practices, the willingness to address social and institutional vulnerability in use countries, and the roles of users in development and facilitation of more sustainable practices.
