CPA Australia and Melbourne Law School’s Centre for Resources, Energy and Environmental Law (CREEL) and Centre for Corporate Law and Securities Regulation (CCLSR) cordially invite you to ‘Value creation in a sustainable manner’, presented by the esteemed Professor Mervyn King SC.

Gain insights from one of the world’s leading thinkers on the changing role of the corporation and how this may play out in complex regulatory and legal environments.

In our resource deprived world, value is no longer looked at through a financial lens, but rather, a sustainability lens. The result? A global shift away from short-term profit with a focus on financial capitalism to long-termism and inclusive capitalism. However, unless value is created in a sustainable manner, an organisation may actually be destroying value. As part of meeting these challenges in the changed world of the 21st century, Chief Financial Officers should perhaps view themselves as Chief Value Officers.

Professor King’s presentation will be followed by an open forum discussion and broader analysis of the potential effects of local and international developments in climate change litigation. How will increased shareholder activism force corporate decision-makers to consider and manage climate change risks? Will it drive a longer term perspective and preserve corporate value?
