Engagement & the “Shareholder Alignment Frontier.”

A conversation at Bloomberg with Erika Karp, founder and CEO of Cornerstone Capital Group, and and Greg Elders, senior ESG analyst with Bloomberg Intelligence

Karp outlines a framework devised by Cornerstone to look at the issues around ESG and overlay a constructive dialogue. While it takes a broad spectrum of stakeholders into account, the Shareholder Alignment Frontier is constructed around shareholder engagement, so IR is integral. ‘There’s no dichotomy between optimizing shareholder returns and dealing with societal need,’ she adds.
