The G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance help policy makers evaluate and improve the legal, regulatory, and institutional framework for corporate governance, with a view to supporting economic efficiency, sustainable growth and financial stability. They are one of the Key Standards for Sound Financial Systems adopted by the Financial Stability Board (FSB). The associated Methodology for Assessing the Implementation of the G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance was developed by the OECD Corporate Governance Committee, with the participation of the World Bank, to underpin an assessment of the implementation of the Principles in a jurisdiction and to provide a framework for policy discussions, for example in the context of the Reviews of Observance of Standards and Codes (ROSCs) or other country assessments. This latest version incorporates changes that were made to the Principles during the 2015 review as well as a number of additional clarifications.

Les entreprises peuvent apporter une contribution positive au développement social et économique lorsqu'elles engagent des parties prenantes telles que les populations locales dans leurs activités de planification et de prise de décision. L'utilité de cet engagement est particulièrement notable dans le secteur des industries extractives, auquel sont associées d'importantes incidences sociales, économiques et environnementales.
