Abstract

The author poses the question whether company law can only promote economic efficiency in a narrow and short-term sense, which in her view equals environmental degradation, loss of biodiversity, and dangerous climate change. She advocates the need for a new type of responsible corporate governance and a different role for company law in that respect.
