LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - Jan. 13, 2013) - Since the dawn of the 21st century, companies have been urged to focus on matters of corporate governance more so than ever before, if they are to be seen as successful and responsible. Last year saw discourse surrounding governance-related issues enter the mainstream, as organisations across the globe attempted to appease those affected by their workings.
In the spirit of recognising positive change, we at Corporate Governance Report have taken it upon ourselves to name the companies and individuals that have pioneered the most significant governance-related advances of the past year in the Corporate Governance Report Awards 2013.
In recent years organisations have bandied about the idea of 'good governance' to such an extent that few can afford to ignore it for fear of being exposed as structurally inadequate. Companies have sought to satisfy increasingly demanding shareholders, maintain a merit-based leadership, identify emerging risks, adopt new strategies and adjust to an evolving regulatory landscape. Nowhere is this better exemplified than among our Corporate Governance Report Award winners of 2013.
For a look at the individuals and companies that have set the precedent for the future, take a look at the 2013 Corporate Governance Report Award winners online or in the new issue of World Finance, available online and in print now.
