Empresas, responsabilidade social e políticas de informação obrigatória no Brasil

Leandro Martins Zanitelli

Resumo


O artigo examina o potencial e as dificuldades das políticas de informação obrigatória como meio para melhorar o desempenho social e ambiental das empresas no Brasil. Consiste em um trabalho de revisão da literatura acerca das políticas de informação obrigatória e de aplicação do estado da arte da pesquisa às particularidades do capitalismo brasileiro, valendo-se, em relação a esse último ponto, da abordagem conhecida como “variedades de capitalismo” e da tentativa recente de sua aplicação aos países da América Latina. O texto conclui em favor do uso das políticas de informação obrigatória para a promoção da responsabilidade social das empresas, sem deixar, no entanto, de salientar alguns dos obstáculos para o sucesso dessas políticas no caso brasileiro.
