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
