Specific issues considered include corporate governance, risk management, customer relationship management, climate change strategy, supply chain standards, labor practices, corporate citizenship and philanthropy, employee development, product stewardship, innovation management, environmental management systems, and environmental policy and procedures and the scope of their application.
