In conjunction with the notion of corporate excellence as synonymous with corporate sustainability, is the concept of precision….Precision in language, research, incentives, measurement, methodologies, and the general approach to business.

With advances in science, technology and other disciplines, we have enabled greater targeting to bring about effective solutions to the societal challenges of our day.  Precision is the theme for this month’s “Journal of Sustainable Finance and Banking.

This month we draw upon experts including those from The Milken Institute, PwC, PepsiCo, and the Forté Foundation to discuss practicalities and purpose in disease management, R&D productivity, accounting, philanthropic services, and measuring “impact.”  We also include notes from Cornerstone’s own analysts addressing topics ranging from Income Inequality to Proxy Access. It is with precision that we look for insights to leverage the capital markets on behalf of a more regenerative and inclusive global economy.
