If you think that companies fhat you put in the second category like examplr ExxonMobil, do not have ethics and values that are similar to other large corporations ( that you include in the first category ) you are making a big mistake. And they will rise up...
Indeed, but there will be challenges to the ethics/values of many organizations as these executive orders and then eventually legislation translates through to reality and tangible impacts. Will orgs "walk the talk" WRT to values, or will they roll over for the sake of expediency and profit, and either wink at or adjust their ethical positioning? In our information saturated and hyper aware society, you can be sure that employees and consumers will be watching and reacting.
Shortly before the election Tesla changed its mission statement from “to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable transport.” -----> “to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy". This is not a subtle shift. Missions are different than values/ethics, but the crisp statement is signaling an inherent commitment to renewables and to help move the world away from fossil fuels. Much coming out of the WH and the cabinet nominees points toward a chilling effect on federal support of renewables, roll backs of efficiency regulations, and a surge in fossil fuel extraction. Elon Musk can't change his mission statement to adjust to the new WH directives, so by definition Tesla will be expected to work in opposition to the goals of Trump and his cabinet.
Exxon has a long form values and ethics position. But you only need to read this content from the "Sustainability" section to know that it's intellectually dishonest and meaningless: "We are committed to addressing the challenge of sustainable development — balancing economic growth, social development and environmental protection so future generations are not compromised by actions taken today." Physics says that Exxon compromises future generations 24/7 by their daily actions, so there's no reason to believe anything Tillerson says about dealing with climate change.
