Good corporate governance ensures an environment of trust, transparency and accountability which enhances investor trust, combats corruption, reduces risks of corporate crisis and scandals and fosters investment, financial stability and business integrity, which is crucial for improving an organisation’s performance.

The Board therefore has the responsibility of protecting the interest of all stakeholders in the organisation for the smooth functioning of the company.
This includes:

-Ensuring the right balance between the conflicting interest of shareholders to prevent theabuse of power by major shareholders and protecting the interests of minority shareholders.

-Reporting related-party transactions transparently to ensure that all actions are legal and ethical and do not compromise shareholder value.

-Creating a business model that ensures that their supply chains are environmentally sustainable and will benefit the communities in which they operate.

-A corporate governance framework that ensures timely and accurate disclosure of material information that will allow shareholders to exercise their shareholder rights on an informe basis and improve public understanding of the organisation’s structure and activities, policies, and performance with respect to environmental and ethical standards and social responsibility.

-CSIA and ICSI have collaborated to host a webinar where the panel of experts will share their experiences and insights on how to implement the right balance between the interests of all the stakeholders in an organization while also achieving their business goals of advancing growth and performance.
