LIBA established the Centre for Business Ethics and Corporate Governance in 2005, to propagate business ethics and internationally accepted corporate governance practices for the benefit of students. This centre is a Government of India recognised Centre for Corporate Governance.
The first webinar of the Centre was held on September 18, 2021, with the blessings of Rev. Fr. C. Joe Arun SJ, Director, LIBA and inaugurated by Prof. P.C. Lakshmi Narayanan, Dean – Academics.
Mr. V. Nagappan, Managing Trustee, Foundation for Financial freedom, addressed the students on the concept “Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) – A Key to Sustainable Development”. He highlighted the red alert report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC 2021) and the rising need for the concept of ESG. Mr. Nagappan gave a broader perspective on the topic with two live case examples of corporates and asserted the importance of demonstrating ethics in all walks of life.
