If you think corporations are doing a bad job of disclosing their internal finances, what kind of job do you think they're doing of reporting on their public health, social and environmental impacts? Attorney Sanford Lewis has been stalking the corporate social responsibility front for years, and now he's made a movie about it: a 30-minute documentary that "describes the potential and limits of an enforceable, disclosure-based strategy for corporate accountability." Lewis is also working with the Corporate Sunshine Working Group, an "alliance of investors, environmental organizations, unions, and public interest groups working to enforce and expand SEC corporate social and environmental disclosure requirements."
