Presentation of the Programme
In the absence of an adequate governance framework, major economic stakeholders, guided by financial performance imperatives, are caught up in a race to the social and environmental bottom. In so doing, they are responsible for ecological and human disasters, either directly or through their subsidiaries or sub-contractors, without their executives or shareholders ever being held accountable.
This levelling down has had a major part to play in our current crises. The emergence of an ecological and social society will require the regulation of these multinationals, the accountability of their executives and owners, and the development of sustainable and fair sectors.
