Session Description: Pressure on corporations to behave ethically is mounting from many directions. Institutional Investors are advocating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) agendas. Larry Fink’s annual letters exhort boards to demonstrate greater social responsibility. Government officials are becoming increasingly vocal in calls for corporations to help address social issues by providing better wages, improved healthcare, and expanded family leave. How is a board to respond? How can and should directors balance pressures for shareholder returns against the emerging forces of social responsibility?
