Marcy Murninghan

How to get the world’s corporations to broaden the idea of what is “material” to their business success and responsibility is the the subject of a new paper by Rules Change collaborator Marcy Murninghan. “Redefining Materiality II: Why it Matters, Who’s Involved and What it Means for Corporate Leaders and Boards,” was released Aug. 8 by the international non-profit, AccountAbility.

Murninghan is co-founder/editor of The Murninghan Post.

“The boundaries between corporations, the environment, and society continue to blur,” said Ted Grant, global-research head at AccountAbility. “This blurring has made identifying and focusing on what is truly important to long-term company performance, impact, and sustainability even more critical as a governance and management discipline.”
