“Compliance affects all business stakeholders: customers,employees, suppliers, partners, shareholders... What’s not to like?” Suzanne Innes-Stubb,Global Compliance Head, KONE

SUMMARY OF PROGRAM

The evolution of corporate purpose from short-term profit maximization to long-term sustainability means that inside counsel must not only manage legal risk, but also navigate environmental, social, and governance issues that pose ethical and reputational risk. Inspired by this change in the role of inside counsel, Berkeley Law’s Business in Society Institute holds symposia and conferences around the world to discuss and present research on emerging sustainability issues and trends. Join us for our program on August 9th in Helsinki.
