CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY

GARY RETELNY

PRESIDENT & CEO

As a leading provider of corporate governance and responsible investment solutions, Corporate Responsibility is CORE to ISS’ character and principles.

With a day-to-day focus on long-term capital stewardship, our people are equally passionate about positively impacting the communities where we live and work. This is also reflected in our work for clients as a rapidly growing number of institutions and corporations across the globe increase their focus on Corporate Responsibility. As ISS continues to drive forward our role as a good global corporate citizen, we are pleased to announce the formal launch of our Corporate Responsibility site. I invite you to learn more below.
