The climate crisis, declining natural resources, and pollution affect us all. We need to make our economic system sustainable now, to be able to face these imminent threats. Corporate governance is instrumental to change how businesses are run and can be a main driver of a sustainable economy.

- propose legislative and non-legislative actions by EU and national policymakers and regulators
