Professor Daniela Carosio and her collaborators deepen the topic of corporate accountability and its relations with CSR, and subsequently the interaction of CSR and Corporate Governance. Then, the discussion moves towards responsible investments and financial analysis, giving finally examples of critical issues related to three specific industries: Oil & Gas, Banking and Telecommunications (Telcos).
