Potential D&O risks arising from corporate social responsibility

Feb 04, 2020

On February 4, 2020, the D&O Diary published an article on how the long-standing and traditional view is that corporations’ objectives should be to maximize shareholder value. But more recently, a variety of commentators and observers have argued that corporations have larger social responsibilities. Efforts by companies to fulfil corporate social responsibilities may involve their own risks and even result in D&O claims.

By the same token, failing to take action could result in claims as well. These trends have important implications for insurers and for policyholders alike.

Review the full article on the D&O Diary's website.
