Review of the G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance


The OECD Corporate Governance Committee is reviewing the G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance. The review was launched in November 2021 and will be completed in Q2 2023. OECD, G20 and FSB members participate in the review as well as other countries through the Committee’s regional Roundtables (Asia, Latin America and the Middle East and North Africa).

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. The Corporate Governance Committee identified a range of priority areas to take into consideration during the review, including the management of environmental, social and governance risks; digitalisation; corporate ownership and concentration; and institutional investors and stewardship, among others. An important overarching goal of the revision is to support corporate sector resilience and to improve companies’ access to finance from capital markets.

In October 2021, OECD Ministers and G20 Leaders supported the Committee’s decision to review the Principles. Ministers and Leaders “recognised the importance of good corporate governance frameworks and well-functioning capital markets to support the recovery, and looked forward to the review of the G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance”.

The Corporate Governance Committee conducted a public consultation on draft revisions to the Principles from in September-October 2022. All contributions can be found here.

Priority areas and supporting publications

The Terms of Reference for the review identified 10 priority areas. To inform the Committee’s discussions on these priority areas, a number of reports and working papers were prepared and released publicly concomitantly with the public consultation:
