    Abstract

    Jan Cremers (UvT en AIAS) has contributed to a third book in a trilogy of Sustainable Company books dedicated to the current debate on the problem of short-termism and the need for long-term sustainable investment. He comes up with a chapter that summarises the results of a study done by a network of company law experts (the ETUI’s SEEurope Network) on the state of worker involvement in sustainability reporting throughout Europe. Strong rights to information on aspects of sustainability such as workplace conditions and environmental performance are needed so that workers can be an ‘adequately informed’ stakeholder. Although there are some interesting national, sectoral and company-based examples of strong information rights and practices, generally worker rights in Europe fall short of what would be needed for adequate information.
