Governance, Stewardship and Sustainability: Theory, Practice and Evidence is a primer that brings together principles of corporate governance, stewardship and sustainability in the context of institutional investment. The book accompanies the ICGN’s signature training programme Governance, Stewardship and Sustainability, but can be read or taught on a stand-alone basis.

Stewardship codes are developing in diverse markets to provide standards and a framework for responsible institutional investment practices and to meet investor fiduciary duties to beneficiaries. At the same time, stewardship is establishing itself as a profession within the institutional investment community, involving asset owners, asset managers, advisors and service providers. While codes provide a starting point, the application of stewardship in practical terms can be challenging for many institutional investors.

Book Reviews

“Investors have long known how to trade. But they are only now embracing how to own company shares to make sure boards steer responsible value creation over the long term. That’s where investor stewardship comes in. Dallas and Lubrano have written the world’s first comprehensive guidebook on the toolkit investors can use to safeguard the financial and social interests of citizen savers. With kudos to the International Corporate Governance Network for publishing, this a vital, must-read manual for professionals in the rising field of stewardship.”

Book Reviews

"This is a must read for any ESG investor and a should read for any corporate governance, environmental and/or social specialist. George and Mike have effectively weaved current trends of ESG integration and stewardship into the complex CG ecosystem. This modern look at corporate governance is refreshing and quite palatable even to the general public or layperson seeking to find out what is ESG."
