Leading Institution in Corporate Governance
Public disclosure of corporate governance information by institutional investors is one of the key areas that ALAS20 evaluates, rates, and awards.
The importance of this category lies in the fact that it allows to learn about the practices of corporate governance of institutional investors, sharing with their stakeholders background on how the organization is being directed and controlled, in favor of sustainable development.
THE CRITERIA FOR EVALUATING THE PUBLICLY AVAILABLE INFORMATION FROM THE LEADING INSTITUTIONS IN CORPORATE GOVERNANCE ARE:
Scope and Depth
The public information of the institution should allow its stakeholders to understand the meaning and value of the adopted corporate governance policies and practices.
Relationship with Stakeholders
The public information of the institution must demonstrate how the firm transmits to its stakeholders the adoption of best corporate governance practices, beyond legal and regulatory compliance.
The institution’s public information should enable its stakeholders to measure the state of progress of corporate governance and make comparisons with the practices and policies adopted in previous years.
The public information of the institution must demonstrate its understanding of the benefits of transparency in the disclosure of corporate governance practices for its stakeholders, through evidence referring to the adoption of best practices in this area.
