Many aspects of the EU’s plans to legislate for sustainable corporate governance remain the subject of heated debate, particularly the prospect of binding due diligence on supply chains and linking directors’ pay to green performance.
The article, authored by Raquel Guerra and originally published on ENDSEurope, explores the different views of business sectors and environmental campaigners regarding the upcoming European Commission’s proposal for a legislation on sustainable corporate governance, aimed at making sure that companies embed sustainability criteria in their operations.

Among the responses, our CEO Olivier Boutellis-Taft distanced himself from other business sectors experts’ views, welcoming the Commission’s upcoming proposal and stating that:
“Corporate governance is instrument to make sustainability an integral part of all business decisions”.
