In recent years, the idea of stakeholder capitalism has been gaining traction among some investors, activists, and policymakers as a new model of corporate governance. In this model, corporations must account for the interests of a broad group of stakeholders, rather than simply their shareholders. Others maintain that corporations engage with all relevant stakeholders for long-term success, but ultimately answer to their shareholders.
BPC, along with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and JUST Capital, will explore how corporations grapple with the growing sentiment that capitalism must be inclusive for a larger group of stakeholders, and how this may change the direction of corporate governance in years to come.
