Founder members continued to meet regularly once in a month to discuss nature of activities, areas for the projects to be handled by the Forum and organized talks of experts in various fields. Forum was renamed as Business Ethics Foundation and was registered under section 8 nonprofit company on Nov 2, 2012.

It is a group of like-minded people working to develop and implement philosophically sound and actionable frameworks for ethical and effective business management. The timeless principle of dignity of the human being and values of truth, freedom and justice provide the foundation for Business Ethics Foundation.
