Launch of 2017 IoD Good Governance Report

10 Oct 2017
Institute of Directors, London

On 10 October the IoD will launch the third edition of the annual Good Governance Report in partnership with Cass Business School.

The Good Governance Report (“The Good Governance Initiative”) is the IoD’s flagship corporate governance publication which publicly ranks the FTSE 100 based on their corporate governance performance. Each year the report sets out the findings from extensive research into the measurement of corporate governance in UK-listed companies. Its purpose is to encourage the study of good governance among UK companies and stimulates public debate on the importance of corporate governance in rebuilding the reputation of the UK business community.

The purpose of this project is to reignite the governance debate by leading it away from the compliance approach to corporate governance that has become widespread in recent years. Our novel approach is to combine traditional governance indicators with a measure of the quality of corporate governance as perceived by stakeholders.

The 2017 Good Governance Report will be launched at 8am on October 10th in the Nash Room at the IoD, 116 Pall Mall, SW1Y 5ED.

This will be an opportunity to pick up a physical copy of the report, hear from some of the advisory panel members and discuss the findings and methodology for 2017. This event has previously been very popular and therefore places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Register now by clicking on the Book Tickets button. A confirmed space at the event includes a light breakfast and your copy of this year’s report.
