Financial soundness indicators (FSIs). were utilized, including capital indicators, asset quality indicators, profitability indicators, and liquidity indicators. The study employed a descriptive-analytical approach, utilizing the published financial statements of these banks to calculate the necessary ratios for measuring FSIs. Additionally, publications from the Palestine Stock Exchange were used to measure market value for the period of 2012-2021. The study revealed several noteworthy findings, including the adherence of listed banks on the Palestine Stock Exchange to the Basel III Committee's regulations regarding FSIs. The data also showed that the Palestinian banking sector ranks at an intermediate to advanced level in terms of banking safety. Furthermore, FSIs have a significant impact on the market-to-book value ratio.</p> Dr. Majdi Alkababji, Dr. Sabri Mushtaha Copyright (c) https://ijbeg.com/index.php/1/article/view/137 The https://ijbeg.com/index.php/1/article/view/136 <p><strong>ABSTRACT </strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>The green economy is a new economic paradigm that aims to promote economic growth while also safeguarding the environment and promoting sustainable social and economic development. This necessitates a shift to green careers and skills, as well as the creation of new occupations associated with workforce greening. All major industries, including renewable energy, construction, manufacturing, construction, transportation, and agriculture, can benefit from green jobs. For all facets of education and training as well as for enterprises, skill acquisition and improvement have significant positive effects. A low-carbon, resource-efficient, and socially inclusive economy is what is meant by the term. In a green economy, infrastructure and assets that enable decreased carbon emissions and pollution, improved energy and resource efficiency, and the prevention of the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services are what generate growth in employment and income.</p> <p>In order to achieve sustainable development, social inclusion, and a shift to a green economy, according to the ILO/UNEP report "Working towards Sustainable Development - Opportunities for Decent Employment and Social Inclusion in a Green Economy," is essential.</p> <p>The report, which was released nearly four years after the first study by the Green Jobs Initiative, lays out a wealth of policy lessons, best practises, and successful programmes and shows that a green economy with more and better jobs, poverty reduction, and social inclusion is both necessary and achievable.</p> Grace Blessy Copyright (c) https://ijbeg.com/index.php/1/article/view/136 Driving Sustainable Development: Exploring the Significance of Green Finance in India https://ijbeg.com/index.php/1/article/view/134 <p>India is the second-most populous country in the world, with nearly 900 million rural resident’s dependents on natural resources such as biodiversity, water, marine ecosystems, grasslands, and mangroves for their livelihoods. India's agricultural and allied sectors, being climate-sensitive, provide employment to more than 50 percent of the population. In recent years, India has experienced extreme events like cloudbursts, heatwaves, cold waves, cyclones, and floods, which are attributed to climate change. These hazards, coupled with India's recognition as one of the top three greenhouse gas emitters, have prompted the Indian government to prioritize climate change issues. In particular, the government sees green finance as a crucial tool for mitigating and adapting to climate change. This paper aims to examine relevant data from various secondary sources to comprehend the different green finance initiatives in India. A systematic approach to green finance involves multiple stakeholders, including financial institutions, the government, and regulatory bodies. However, a significant barrier to implementing green investments for investors, businesses, and banks has been the lack of knowledge about green finance. Without a foundation for internal budgeting, accounting, and incorporating green projects into Key Performance Indicators for financial institutions, allocating funds for such projects becomes challenging. The green economy is both a driver and a result of sustainable development. This research seeks to highlight the importance of green finance for the Indian economy by referencing India's short-term and long-term goals of becoming a sustainable and green economy.</p> Shantha Kumari K G Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Business Ethics and Governance https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://ijbeg.com/index.php/1/article/view/134 Tue, 18 Jul 2023 00:00:00 +0000 OTHER INTERPRETATIONS OF PUBLIC SERVICE MOTIVATION: UNDERSTANDING THE MORAL PERSONA IN GOVERNMENT SERVICE https://ijbeg.com/index.php/1/article/view/132 <p>Public Service Motivation (PSM) is a concept that is typically interpreted as a motivator in the field of public administration. It is often seen as a public service persona that embodies structural rationales in the social sphere. However, there is a need to explore whether PSM can also be viewed as a moral persona to evaluate its virtuous substance more carefully. This article examines the relationship between PSM and moral persona, exploring their commonalities, regulation mechanisms, and ethical ideals. It argues that PSM can be seen as a moral persona with multiple aspects rooted in social ideals</p> Copyright (c) https://ijbeg.com/index.php/1/article/view/132
