CommentSupported the establishment of the University of California Berkeley School of Law’s Business in Society course on rule of law and sustainability, working to make these an essential part of the general counsel’s remit. Chief legal officer Ricardo Cortés-Monroy was active in the advisory group of general counsels who published, together with UN Global Compact and Linklaters, the Guide for General Counsel on Corporate Sustainability. The legal team remains an essential member of the working group that is seeking to engage general counsel to increase their contribution to the rule of law agenda.
