John Forrer and Tim Fort: The Peace Attributes of Companies (PACO) index

By John Forrer, Associate Research Professor of Strategic Management & Public Policy Associate Faculty, Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration, George Washington University & Tim Fort, Eveleigh Professor of Business Ethics, Kelley School of Business, Indiana University

Given the growth and maturity of the field of business and peace, in this article we call for the creation of an index that would present a scorecard of company behaviors.


We call this the PACO index, which is an acronym for Peaceful Attributes of Companies and is the word for peace in Esperanto.


We provide a set of principles and drivers that would be necessary for the creation of such an index.


This article is free for the duration of this Challenge (until end Nov 2016)
