    Our Corporate Governance Committee promotes effective corporate governance designed to foster business growth, create sustainable value, and stimulate innovation and entrepreneurship. The Committee provides direct business input to the OECD during bi–annual consultations, as well as during regional roundtables around the world. In light of the ongoing review process of the G20/OECD Principles, our Committee identified key issues for the private sector and these are reflected in the Principles. Further, we provide the business voice to the implementation of the SOE Guidelines and the Anti-Corruption and Integrity Guidelines for SOEs as well as to broader OECD discussions on trust in business.

    Business engagement at OECD

    The OECD serves as an international standard setter in the area of corporate governance with various instruments such as OECD/G20 Corporate Governance Principles and the OECD Guidelines for Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises. As we transition to recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, the updated G20/OECD Principles will become more relevant to help business address long-term issues such as sustainability, carbon emission, and maximization of enterprise value. The SOE Guidelines, together with their implementation guidelines, provide concrete advice to countries on how to manage more effectively their responsibilities as company owners.
    The Corporate Governance Committee contributes to the work of the following OECD bodies:
    • OECD Corporate Governance Committee
    • OECD Working Party on State Ownership and Privatization Practices
