Abstract

This paper poses some questions related to the current state of international business and the way it is governed by big multinationals. The author aims to examine critically how corporate boards of listed companies design and monitor the policy of their companies towards their suppliers - Global Supply Chains. Environmental and social issues in the buyer-supplier relations are on the agenda of policy makers at both national and international levels. Global business players devise initiatives to fight child abuse, pollution, improper usage of natural resource. Academia examines the above issues through the prism of macroand microeconomic studies, social and environmental research. This paper aims to analyze the role of good corporate governance in coping with bad working conditions in factories in developing economies and related environmental problems. The focus is on the compliance with one of the six corporate governance principles: recognizing the rights of stakeholders. Traditional research methods are employed to meet the objective of the study: literature survey and case studies.
