Abstract

The emerging field of corporate law, corporate governance and sustainability is one of the most dynamic and significant areas of law and policy in light of the convergence of environmental, social and economic crises that we as a global society face. Understanding the impact of the corporation on society and realizing its potential for contributing to sustainability is vital for the future of humanity. This Handbook comprehensively assesses the state-of-the-art in this field through in-depth discussion of sustainability-related problems, numerous case studies on regulatory responses implemented by jurisdictions around the world, and analyses of predominant strategies and potential drivers of change. This Handbook will be an essential reference for students, scholars, practitioners, policymakers and general readers interested in how corporate law and governance have exacerbated global society’s most pressing challenges, and how reforms to these fields can help us resolve those challenges and achieve sustainability.

Keywords: planetary boundaries, human rights, corporate social responsibility, sustainable finance, company law, global value chains, corporate accountability, multinational enterprises, corporate groups, ESG disclosure
