Sustainability: A New Paradigm of Corporate Reporting
In 2017, the School of Finance of HSE was selected by the American Council for International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX) as a partner for the Corporate Sustainability Leadership Education Program. The program aims to improve educational programs related to sustainable corporate development as well as provide online classes in the field of corporate sustainability that will be available for students and professionals.
Corporate sustainability can be seen as a new and evolving corporate governance paradigm. Within this paradigm, it is believed that although corporate growth and profitability are still important, it is necessary, however, that the company pursue goals aimed at sustainable development, which involves environmental protection, social justice and equality, and economic development.
