Performance measurement is a relatively new concept. As such, it needs clarification in many issues which are connected with it. The paper deals with the ethical aspects related to performance measurement. The author focuses on the moral conflict which is common - if not inevitable - in such a process. The paper is based on the study of literature on performance measurement, stakeholder theory and business ethics. The considerations presented in the paper are of theoretical nature, nevertheless they lead to practical conclusions.
