World Finance Awards Prove Corporate Governance Matters

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - March 5, 2015) - The financial crisis alerted consumers to what inadequate corporate governance could bring if allowed to go unchecked, and firms have since responded to the pressure by improving oversight, transparency and accountability in whatever field it is they're in. With this in mind, World Finance has covered the most notable corporate governance stories of the past year in the Corporate Governance Awards 2015.

Looking at investor relations, disclosure, boardroom composition, remuneration and a host of other factors, the World Finance Corporate Governance Awards highlight the firms deserving of praise in each of their respective geographies. With the debate about the purpose and responsibility of corporations still ongoing, the winners of this year's Corporate Governance Awards give an indication of what it takes to stand up to these criticisms in an already-challenging economic climate.

Historically, the goal of corporates has been to maximise profits and shareholder returns however they can, yet growing pressures on companies to operate both responsibly and sustainably means that corporate governance is just as important - if not more so - than profitability today. Looking at the winners of this year's World Finance Corporate Governance Awards, it's clear that impressive progress has been made on this front over the past 12 months, and looks on course to continue in much the same way.

For a look at the winners of this year's Corporate Governance Awards, take a look at the new issue of World Finance, available in print and online now.
