Tineke Lambooy is professor Corporate Law at Nyenrode Business University (Nyenrode) in the Netherlands. She also holds the title adjunct professor at Airlangga University in Surabaya, Indonesia, an academic partner university of Nyenrode. Her research involves corporate social responsibility (CSR), corporate governance and corporate law. In her academic work and lectures, she emphasises that companies are an important actor in the transformation of our economy into a circular economy, in which the human rights of all people are respected and ecosystems can survive.
The implementation of CSR in companies requires a clear governance structure: it should be clear which employee(s) in each layer of an organisation is mandated to implement certain CSR elements, to monitor such implementation process, and to collect the information needed for the company’s reporting on ESG issues.
In her inaugural lecture, she discussed “Leadership, Entrepreneurship & Stewardship in Corporate Law” (Nyenrode 2016), and in her PhD publication, she focused on “Corporate social responsibility: legal and semi-legal frameworks supporting CSR” (Kluwer, 2010).
Tineke is a lawyer by trade. She gained experience as a corporate lawyer specialised in international corporate and capital market transactions at the law firm Loyens & Loeff and its predecessors.
In addition to her work at Nyenrode, Tineke also holds several supervisory board, board, and advisory board positions, i.e. supervisory director of the listed companies ‘ASN Beleggingsfondsen UCITS NV’ and ‘ASN Beleggingsfondsen AIF NV’; board member of the NGOs ‘Stand up for your rights’ and the ‘Dutch Club of Rome’; advisory board member of the social enterprises ‘The Social Handshake’ and ‘ArtSwitch’; and academic counsel of the ‘Lab Toekomstige Generaties’ (Lab Future Generations).
