Corporate governance is about what kind of corporate citizen the organizations seek to be. It is a part of business conduct best practices in any industr and business environment, therefore no organization can afford to ignore it about.
Increased stakeholder attention and scrutiny over topics such as business integrity and ethics, board composition, diversity, independence, accountability and compensation, employment and work ethics practices, proactive legal, social and environmental compliance, reputational risk management, enhanced organizational transparency and reporting, solid organizational moral compass have given rise to a wide spectrum of corporate governance management practices and standards of excellence.
Good corporate governance is the one embracing principles of social responsibility deemed critical in ensuring the survival and prosperity of the organization and bringing substantial benefits to the business: improved and more transparent relationships with stakehodlers, proactive legal, social, envrionmental and reputational risk management, increased organizational effectiveness and ultimately, the social license to operate within communities.
In our view, good governance is linked with management / Board accountability, successful compliance, stakeholders' trust and transparency and includes the broad range of management practices embraced by organizations to manage themselves and fulfill their responsibilities towards their investors, employees, suppliers, customers, communities and other categories of stakeholderds.
