Business Ethics Network (BEN) states: "Our mission is to help transform the role of corporations in society by building the capacity of our members in their corporate campaign work, by providing education, facilitating collaboration, and increasing recognition of their campaign successes with the funding community and the public." [1]

According to its website, BEN was launched in 2003 when "many of the top environmental and environmental health markets campaigners from the U.S., Europe, and Canada came together for the first time at the Markets Synergies Conference in Bolinas, California. ... They agreed to create the Business Ethics Network (BEN), with the mission of improving the effectiveness of corporate campaigns worldwide in order to make business practices more ethical in terms of the environment, health, social justice, and labor. [2]

BEN was begun by Michael Marx as a project of Corporate Ethics International (both have the same staff and address) and whose mission is: "to transform the role of corporations so that they are once again in service to and under the control of civil society. [3]
