Course Description

In this Online CPE Webinar, the speaker examines non-financial/qualitative environmental, ethical, social, and governance (EESG) sustainability performance, better known as corporate social responsibility (CSR). Corporate social responsibility is considered an integral component of non-financial corporate sustainability performance. EESG activities can be viewed as activities that contribute to shareholder value creation or regarded as costly activities with a cost that is immediate and tangible and related benefits that may not materialize in the short-term and are often non-measurable.

EESG activities are typically considered externalities beyond activities relevant to financial economic sustainability performance and which can be viewed positively or negatively by shareholders. Examples of positive externalities are : 

  • Diversity and independence of the board of directors
  • Majority voting by shareholders
  • Executive compensation linked to performance based on say on pay and pay for performance as part of corporate governance effectiveness
  • Environmental initiatives regarding climate change and greenhouse gas emissions
  • High-quality and safe products
  • Customer satisfaction
  • Ethical workplaces
  • Job creation and fair employment. 

Examples of negative externalities are excessive risk-taking by executives, natural resource depletion, pollution, aggressive management, and human rights abuses, child labor, corruption, money laundering
