    About this book:

    Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Laws, Regulations and Practices in the Digital Era is a first-of-its-kind book to exhaustively analyze the ESG phenomenon as a tripartite corporate purpose model and the profusion of laws and regulations it continues to engender. In the past two decades, the traditional role of corporate governance has been greatly amplified and modified by increased attention to the importance of social inclusion in business decisions and of environmental impacts of business activities, effecting the now well-understood linkage among ESG principles.

     

    What’s in this book:

    Based on perspectives from law, economics and business management, the book elucidates those ESG challenges that, in all probability, would ramify companies in the years to come. The author addresses the following aspects of ESG law, regulation, and practice:

    • impact of digitalization on ESG practices;
    • competing ESG perspectives and whether there are signs of convergence toward a more universal model;
    • impact of corporate ownership patterns;
    • review of hard and soft law responses;
    • corporate control under COVID-19 pandemic conditions;
    • workplace and workforce transformations;
    • various ESG-related corporate scandals and controversies;
    • ESG regulatory responses from international entities such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO); and
    • seminal ESG cases in various business sectors.

     

    The book lays emphasis on developments in the European Union, the United States, and the United Kingdom not only because it is in those jurisdictions that ESG challenges have been and are most fully dealt with but also because these economies taken together are likely to continue exerting dominating influence globally.

     

    How this will help you:

    This unique book furnishes apposite insights and guidance for those seeking a better understanding of ESG practices and underlying theories across major economies. It lends clarity to law practitioners, policymakers, and academicians who should lead the charge for ESG practices in business enterprises in major jurisdictional settings. Its in-depth coverage of best ESG practices will be highly appreciated by those conducting their business enterprises within approved regulatory parameters.
