Towards Sustainability

Major Challenges for Corporate Law, Corporate Governance and Regulation

Edited by: Kid Schwarz, Christine van Basten-Boddin, Sybren de Hoo, Samantha Renssen

Towards Sustainability covers the presentations held at the launching event of the Institute for Corporate Law, Governance, and Innovation Policies (ICGI) at Maastricht University. The thought-provoking presentations were given by the following distinguished speakers: Willem Lageweg (Director of MVO Nederland and a member of the ICGI Advisory Board), Prof. Dr. Jacqueline Cramer (Director of the Utrecht Sustainability Institute and Professor in Sustainable Innovation at Utrecht University), Dr. Andre Veneman (Corporate Director Sustainability/Health Safety and Environment at AkzoNobel), Prof. Jan Eijsbouts and Prof. Sybren De Hoo (both members of the Maastricht University based Institute for Corporate Law, Governance and Innovation Policies). In addition to these presentations, the inaugural lectures of Professor Eijsbouts and Professor De Hoo have been updated and are included in the book. Towards Sustainability will be of interest, not only to legal scholars and practitioners with an interest in the legal challenges brought about by the corporate social responsibility debate, but also for managers of stock-quoted companies, as well as small- and medium-sized companies. Contents include: Corporate Social Responsibility: The Standard for 21st Century Business * Towards Sustainability: From Government to Governance * Sustainable Business Development: There Is No Alternative! * Cracking the Impermeable Ceiling of Corporate Sustainability Performance Levels * Corporate Responsibility, beyond Voluntarism: Regulatory Options to Reinforce the License to Operate.
