#24 Susan Mac Cormac, how can new corporate form help save the planet?

This week we’re talking about impact investment - and about what role it can play in this crisis.

The idea that the COVID-19 crisis could push the reset button on different aspects of our lives is something we’ve been hearing quite a lot these days. One of the places we’re hearing it is on the stock markets.

Susan Mac Cormac is an expert when it comes to impact investment - a relatively new trend from the United States which can be observed on stock markets worldwide. Impact investment is not just about making money; it is also about responsible investing - doing something good for society or the environment while generating financial returns.

Mac Cormac is a corporate partner at the law firm Morrison & Foerster in San Francisco and chairs the Energy and Social Enterprise and Impact Investing practices. Her focus is on late-stage financings, secondaries and other corporate transactions for investors as well as investments for parties dedicated to impact.

She was named a California Lawyer Attorney of the Year (CLAY) by Daily Journal in 2012 and 2016 and the Most Innovative Lawyer in North America by the Financial Times in 2015.
