About this book


Corporate governance, executive pay, child labour and control of industrial pollution are issues that all companies must face. While the issues themselves have been widely discussed, the process by which they develop is a much less discussed area. A key to being a sustainable company is the capacity to understand and predict how such issues develop. This book examines the development of a number of issues and draws lessons which companies in the future can use.
