Should the success of an individual be measured by how much material wealth they have gained, or how good a person they are? Should the success of an organization be measured only by the bottom line, or also by the good they have contributed to society? Being ethical involves more that staying out of trouble. We all have within our character the ability to be a very good and noble person.
