Executive Insights - Collective Intelligence Newsletter May | Brunswick Group

Welcome to another edition of Brunswick's executive playbook for the critical issues facing global organizations.

This month, our China Hub, Geopolitical and US Public Affairs, Policy and Regulatory teams examined what steps executives should take in response to the new US TikTok law. And the "rock star of taxation" Pascal Saint-Amans lays out what the C-Suite needs to know about coming tax disclosure rules (hint: it's not just a matter for the tax team anymore).

We'll also help you understand the EU's new corporate due diligence directive on climate, bring you a legal view on the use of AI in healthcare and take a look at the implications of India's ongoing elections.

Let’s get started.

Now, the EU has adopted rules to make this information public for operations in the region.

Companies need to reflect on how their tax stories, as revealed by public reporting, can help them build -- or at the very least not damage -- public, employee and stakeholder trust.
