Good corporate citizenship at home and abroad – which includes respect for human rights, environmental stewardship and community investment – plays an essential role in enhancing public trust, attracting and retaining talent and reducing investor perceptions of risk. On a national level, public governance provides the foundation for healthy economic growth and social progress.
The Business Council supports strong governance measures, on issues including:
- Board of Directors composition and governance
- Corporate integrity and ethical business practices
- Frameworks for government consultation and appointment processes
