GoodCorp Research Network on Corporate Governance

GoodCorp is a network of researchers and trade unionists dedicated to promoting a stakeholder approach to EU corporate governance and company law. Its three main activities are:

  • the exchange of information and opinions on current issues on the European corporate governance and company law agenda as well as on key developments in EU Member States
  • research and publication on policy options
  • advice and support for the European trade union movement on these issues

The Sustainable Company

GoodCorp’s conceptual orientation was developed and elaborated in a series of three books on the “Sustainable Company”:

The Sustainable Company: a new approach to corporate governance (Vitols and Kluge, eds. 2011)

European company law and the Sustainable Company: a stakeholder approach (Vitols and Heuschmid, eds. 2013)

Long-term investment and the Sustainable Company: a stakeholder perspective (Vitols, ed. 2015)
