Environmental, social and corporate governance trends
The new NZX Corporate Governance Code is the most significant upgrade since the original Code was published in 2003. It represents a big step forward and significantly advances shareholders' rights and achieves much closer alignment with the Financial Markets Authority corporate governance handbook.
The NZX went even further in its push for Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG); health and safety; and diversity reporting.
Joan Withers - New Zealand businessperson, Professional Director, Author – A Woman’s Place, and expert on Environmental, social and corporate governance trends, will deliver insights into the new Code. In 2015 Joan was named Supreme Winner in the New Zealand Women of Influence Awards and was named Chairperson of the Year in the Deloitte Top 200 Management Awards.
