Experts from academia, campaign groups and big corporates are set to come together to debate the evolution of corporate governance practice and policy at a conference in June.
Among the speakers will be Yukako Kinoshita, corporate responsibility and EU policy research, at Hitachi and David Cooke, a lawyer at ClientEarth, the campaigning law firm, that made news when it forced the UK government to publish a delayed report on how to tackle air pollution.
The conference is being hosted by law firm Frank Bold, which runs the Purpose of the Corporation Project, and Cass Business School.
The hosts said: “Speakers and participants will discuss the evolution of corporate accounting practice and policy, taking into account the needs of long-term investors and an integrated approach to value creation, as well as provide guidance to companies on how to comply with a rapidly evolving regulatory environment.”
The event, the last in a series three exploring corporate governance, will take place on Wednesday 7 June, at Cass Business School, 106 Bunhill Row, London Ec1 8TZ
