From the Paper:

"The preponderance of evidence seems to support that ethical decision making on the part of international business organizations tends to provide positive financial results in the long term.

They have: destroyed some of the world's largest companies and hundreds of billions of dollars in shareholder value..."(Copeland, 2005, p.36)."
