Paper Anne Lafarre and Christoph Van der Elst on Shareholder Sustainability Activism in the Netherlands

Christoph F. Van der Elst en Anne J.F. Lafarre have posted a new article on SSRN on Shareholder Activism regarding Corporate Sustainability in the Netherlands. Using text mining techniques, they find that shareholders in the Netherlands increasingly care about corporate sustainability, providing some counter evidence against the general consensus that shareholder primacy negatively affects corporate sustainability.  The empirical analysis will also be part of the Cambridge Handbook of Corporate Law, Corporate Governance and Sustainability.
