Corporations and Human Rights: Thoughts on the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Movement — A View From Asia

The Program on Human Rights and the Global Economy (PHRGE) at Northeastern University School of Law invites you to join us for a lecture on the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Movement. When companies and investors talk about ESG commitments, most focus only on environmental issues – and overlook social and governance issues. Of particular concern are human rights violations related to supply chain policies and modern slavery practices.
