CPRT Expert Dialogue with Rick Alexander and Sara Murphy of The Shareholder Commons
July 22, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm EDT
Why Diversified Shareholders Must Mobilize to Ensure ESG Includes Corporate Political Responsibility (CPR)
Thursday, July 22, 3:00 pm – 4:15 pm EDT
Boards, executives and investment managers are working to address evolving shareholder interest in environmental, social and governance issues. Yet few have yet focused on the particular interest that “universal owners” — large institutional investors with diversified portfolios that have a financial interest in the well-being of the economy as a whole — in greater corporate political responsibility.
- Why is CPR pivotal to the success of a diversified portfolio?
- How does fiduciary duty apply to corporate political influence strategies that are calculated to increase a company’s financial return?
- What strategies are investors using to push for CPR – and how can companies prepare?
To explore these questions and more, please join us for an interactive dialogue with Rick Alexander and Sara Murphy of The Shareholder Commons. Elizabeth Doty, Director of the CPRT, will moderate the conversation.
