  • In April 2013, an eight-story Rana Plaza commercial building collapsed in Savar, Bangladesh, resulting in a death toll of 1,134 and about 2,515 injured people. The purpose of this report is to investigate the business ethnics of multinational companies in this accident. As important carriers of the economic globalization, multinational corporation plays a decisive role in the world economic system. In the development process, ethic problems encountered by multinational corporation are hot spot issues and worth studying. Through investigation, the author found that some invloved multinational corporations has not fulfilled their responsibility in the accident. After the tragedy, social media played a promoting effect in urging corporations to make donation but the effect was limited.

    In conclusion,the most significant ethical issue involved in the building collapsed tragedy in Savar in Bangladesh is human rights, especially the right to life. Due to the special operation mode and different ethical culture, ethical issue of human rights is particularly difficult to multinational companies. However, ethical issues are not unique to multinational companies. Mistreatment of workers would happen in places that have backward industrial structure, imperfect market supervision, surplus labor population and weak sense of “feedback”. After the tragedy, the wage of workers have increased but they face the threat of losing jobs. And, about 15 involved Multi-National Corporations has not paid the rational compensation for victims. Social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, Wechat and Google+, put great pressure on involved multinational corporations and promoted some beneficial actions but the tweets were just not lasting.
