Event Description

The scope of Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance, or ESG, has been expanding to encompass a broad range of issues. Although diverse, many of these areas involve, at their core, crucial ethical concerns. Questions emerge concerning the roles and responsibilities of corporations and other stakeholders, as well as the short- and long-term social and environmental risks and benefits. How do these and other ethical tensions emerge in ESG, and how are they addressed? Can improvements be made, and if so, how? As a field, bioethics examines such quandaries, yet it hasn’t been directly involved in ESG efforts—until now. This event will explore these important and fascinating issues, in order to discover the intersections, challenges and opportunities they present.
