Abstract

This chapter intends to be setting the scene and to analyse, in different angles, how corporate governance interacts with ESG (environment, sustainability and governance) matters. The corporate governance system serves to prepare, adopt, execute, monitor and enforce decisions in ESG (environment, sustainability and governance) matters. Therefore, the interaction between corporate governance and ESG is structural, reciprocal and multifaceted. Two main levels are to be taken into account: the investors’ level and the investee companies’ level. One of the cornerstones of this analysis is the concept of the ESG cascade effect here described as the potential aptitude for companies to engage in ESG-based decisions and to systemically influence others to do so, including investors, investee companies and their respective supply chain and community.
