COVID-19 Policy for European Business Ethics Forum (EBEF) 2024

Le Cercle d’Ethique des Affaires (CEA), the Ethics & Compliance Initiative (ECI) and the Institute of Business Ethics (IBE), hereinafter referred to as the EBEF team, are committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for the 2023 in-person European Business Ethics Forum (EBEF).

Further, you understand that refusal to adhere to any EBEF policy and to abide by EBEF’s published safety measures and precautions may result in a participant’s expulsion from the event and cancellation of their registration, without receiving a refund.
