Chapter 3 Responsibility in a corporate context
Restricted access

This chapter looks at what responsibility entails in the company context, at the basis on which responsibility expectations can be applied to shareholders and how shareholders can demonstrate or respond to the demands of 'being responsible'. The chapter draws on legal theories and philosophical analyses of responsibility in group contexts to establish that shareholders can appropriately be described as responsibility agents, noting that their responsibility is separate from that of the company. On this basis the chapter returns to and further elaborates the idea of the 'hypothetical responsible shareholder' described in chapter 1 of the books.
