    Previously voluntary, corporate social responsibility initiatives have become a central element of compliance programs, as unique and challenging CSR-related legal requirements are emerging. Companies face significant legal penalties, measurable litigation risk, and public relations fallout if they fail to address these requirements.  Moreover, investors and stakeholders expect that businesses and their leaders will improve their environmental, social, and governance practices.

    To help clients successfully traverse these challenges, this new deskbook provides you with an informed and sophisticated overview of various CSR-related legal issues that face in-house and outside counsel. This comprehensive book fills a void in existing practitioner-focused legal guidance, particularly where institutional resources may be limited. As valuable tool, the deskbook includes background information and expert guidance on:

    • Evolution of corporate social responsibility and the need for a practitioner’s manual
    • Governance and the role of the board with CSR
    • Legal and regulatory requirements for community investment and protection of indigenous rights
    • Best practices for stakeholder engagement
    • Reporting and disclosure with respect to CSR
    • Global and U.S. federal legal and regulatory requirements for environmental issues
    • Labor and supply chain practices
    • Building a CSR program through an ethics and compliance program
    • How a responsible organization should manage cybersecurity risk?
    • And more!
