Can we hold the boards responsible for sustainability.

My purpose is to bring a fresh perspective to law students, to put in front of them a vision of corporations and corporate law that perhaps they hadn’t had before, that corporate boards are often not held accountable for the consequences of their work, specifically in regards to sustainability. Keeping in mind the way corporations are run, which directly affects their carbon footprints, with the issue. Every company should publish an annual sustainability report according to an accepted framework. We need to hold boards responsible for sustainability. This is given lip service a lot. A lot of what I’m saying is out of the mainstream which I recognize. That’s one of my goals—to be a little bit out of the mainstream and to challenge assumptions and conventional wisdom underlying the purpose of corporations and the legal standing of corporations.
