In this episode of “Corporate Lawyers Changing the World: An Insider's Look at Corporate Social Responsibility” we talk with Suz Mac Cormac about impact investing, social enterprises and future of professional guidance on environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters.
Suz, one of the authors of The Lawyer’s Corporate Social Responsibility Deskbook, is a Corporate Partner at Morrison & Foerster. Since 2001 she has dedicated her career to focusing on ESG and impact, particularly developing and implementing legal solutions, such as corporate forms, financing instruments and vehicles for the aggregation of capital, to address climate change. Suz advises a full range of investors focused on social and environmental impact, including traditional top-tier venture and growth equity investors entering the impact space for the first time and those looking for innovative solutions in this space. Suz teaches at Berkeley Law School, was a founding board member of SASB and she is currently on the Board of Directors of BSR and the President’s Council at CERES.
