Companies are no longer isolated units of economic production. Accountable to authorities, shareholders, and stakeholders, businesses profit-making efforts must now align corporate values with its operations in the field. Besides sophisticated law and regulation, increased scrutiny, due to broader societal and environmental concerns may consolidate or jeopardize a company´s social value, its triple bottom line, its commercial leadership, and/or brand reputation.

That is why a successful company today requires the capacity to interpret and react to law, policy, and regulation; participate in public policy decision making processes; manage juridical risk, secure human rights due diligence and identify  opportunities to innovate in society with and through its business to increase shareholder value and set itself apart from the competition, while aligning to changing world expectations.
