10 ideas to make corporate governance a driver of a sustainable economy Thought-leadership paper

The climate crisis, declining natural resources, and pollution affect us all. We need to make our economic system sustainable now, to be able to face these imminent threats. Corporate governance is instrumental to change how businesses are run and can be a main driver of a sustainable economy.

Boards and policymakers/regulators are key players to transform the economy. This paper suggests ten actions for them to accelerate this transition. We aim to challenge them and provoke thoughts with ten recommendations that:

  • suggest changes in boards’ roles and practices
  • propose legislative and non-legislative actions by EU and national policymakers and regulators

We want to inspire a debate and welcome your feedback on this paper. Send your thoughts and opinions on how corporate governance needs to evolve to iryna@accountancyeurope.eu by 31st January 2020.

Have a look here for our #SustainableCorpGov event to launch this paper on 26 June in Brussels.
