Our economic world is mired in a crisis of values. We see that greed, an emphasis on short-term profits, and general apathy towards human needs and the environment are commonplace. Even as economies become increasingly interconnected and interdependent, the consciousness within business appears to not have moved much beyond an exploitation paradigm. Global sustainability and wellbeing require a new mindset where business creates value for all, as systemic problems require systemic solutions. This mindset entails a holistic vision of business fostering peace. Accordingly, this article explores a theoretical framework, which allows for a new mindset of corporate leadership for peace to emerge where business can climb a ladder of morality. The relationship between business and peace is explored from the perspective of individual companies and their potential to contribute to peace.
