CPRT Expert Dialogue with Jerome Tagger, CEO of Preventable Surprises
“Preventable Surprises: An Investor Perspective on Corporate Lobbying Alignment”

A CPRT Expert Dialogue with Jerome Tagger, CEO of Preventable Surprises

The foundation of CPR (corporate political responsibility) is alignment of companies’ political influences with their purpose, values and commitments to stakeholders and sustainability. Leaders are increasingly aware that misaligned lobbying or other political influences can create costly reputational issues that damage their brand, employee engagement, customer relationships and investor ESG ratings.
But how big of an issue is corporate lobbying misalignment?
Please join us for our next Expert Dialogue, with Jerome Tagger, CEO of the investor-focused non-profit, Preventable Surprises, which conducted an in-depth project to analyze corporate lobbying misalignment across multiple industries in 2020. In this interactive conversation, we will explore the results of that project and their current work with investors, including:

● The scope and impact of corporate lobbying misalignment
● Tensions investment managers face in ensuring alignment
● What the best companies and investment managers are doing to address misalignment and ensure corporate political responsibility

The Corporate Political Responsibility Taskforce (CPRT)’s Expert Dialogues are in-depth, recorded conversations with academic experts, stakeholder advocates and business practitioners to provide our members and other CPR champions with the expertise and context they need to develop principled, proactive CPR strategies.

This dialogue is designed for leaders in government affairs, diversity, equity and inclusion, and sustainability, as well as academic experts and stakeholder advocates. We invite those interested in a constructive, non-partisan, principles-based discussion.
