DG Justice and Consumers Conference "Sustainable Corporate Governance"

Event description:

On 24 January 2019, DG JUST will organise a conference on sustainable corporate governance. This one-day event will bring together policy-makers and relevant stakeholders with the aim to discuss recent policy developments in the field of corporate governance with a focus on sustainability and due diligence. It will also provide an opportunity to exchange ideas on how foster more sustainable governance as announced in action 10 of the Action Plan on Financing Sustainable Growth. Corporate governance has a key role to play in delivering the EU’s commitments to implement the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris agreement on climate change. The rapidly changing global economy calls for a corporate governance model that would help address the most pressing challenges ranging from climate change and environmental degradation to growing inequality and technological transformation. Undue focus on shareholder returns over the last 20 years appears to have led to under investment in innovation and human capital, which are however crucial for the sustainability transition. The business sector is increasingly recognizing that investment into sustainability is the wise thing to do in the long run. This is why the EU’s Sustainable Finance Action Plan puts particular emphasis on fostering sustainable corporate governance through redefining corporate board duties.
