The Principles of the Most-Followed Religions in the World versus a Human-Centered Business Model



The share of the global population that follows one of the world’s major faiths is estimated at 75.05 per cent or 5,479,200,000 individuals2 out of a total of 7.3 billion.3 The moral and ethical principles that these religions preach seem very close to the secular common principles adopted by the international community over the last hundred years in the framework of international institutions throught their legal instruments like treaties, agreements, resolutions and declarations. This overlap must be examined.

This article proposes that these 5.5 billion men, women and children religious principles constitute a common platform for moral and ethical conduct. The principles established by each of the major world religions may, in part, constitute the common platform agreed by consensus among the nations forming the international community.
