World Finance Names 2014's Corporate Governance Giants

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - Feb. 28, 2014) - The financial crisis has brought to light the irresponsible behaviour of various companies and given rise to an unprecedented focus on matters of corporate governance to protect against any further crises. Never before has there been quite such an effort on the part of corporates to instill exemplary internal controls along with a responsible company culture from the top down.

A culture of irresponsibility is believed by some to be at the root of the global financial crisis, as are the very many structural shortfalls that allowed it to go unchecked. The underlying issues here have caused companies to hone in on corporate governance in order to avert the crises of years gone by and at the same time appease shareholders, employees and consumers alike.

In answer to this newfound focus on corporate governance, we at World Finance have made it our mission to name the companies that we believe represent the very best in this domain. The World Finance Corporate Governance Awards 2014 name the greatest companies of this past year and act as the yardstick to which all aspiring companies should aim for with regards to corporate governance best practice.

The award winners are those who have really gone that extra mile to make known their commitment to matters of transparency, accountability and responsibility in all they do. The Corporate Governance Award recipients not only represent good governance in itself, but also demonstrate a knowingness of their responsibilities to the local, national and global communities in which they work.

The award winners are not just well behaved companies, but vital players in driving some of the biggest financial and societal developments across the world.

For an insight into the recipients of this year's Corporate Governance Awards, see the new March-April issue of World Finance, available online or in print now.
