Purpose of the consultation

The OECD Corporate Governance Committee is conducting a public consultation on revisions to the G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance. The overall objective of the review is to update the Principles in light of recent evolutions in capital markets and corporate governance policies and practices. OECD and G20 countries have identified a range of priority areas to take into consideration during the review, including the management of environmental, social and governance risks; digitalisation; changes in corporate ownership and concentration; and the role of institutional investors and stewardship, among others. An important overarching aim of the revision is to support strengthened corporate sector resilience and to improve companies’ access to finance from capital markets.
