Corporate governance touches the very core of how companies are organised and how they relate to their key stakeholders and the outside world. Europe should aim at a corporate governance framework that allows capital markets to remain an attractive way for companies to access finance. Being listed should be a catalyst to creation of growth and jobs.
One-size-fits-all legislation is incompatible with the diversity and richness of corporate governance systems. These are the product of a long process of fine tuning and balance reached between legislation and self-regulation.
BusinessEurope seeks to promote good corporate governance through the exchange of best practices and increased transparency through a better application of national codes of corporate governance.
