UE launches a public consultation to improve existing corporate governance mechanisms
The Commission has adopted a Green Paper on corporate governance in Europe which launches a public consultation on possible ways forward to improve existing corporate governance mechanisms. The Green Paper contains three chapters: boards, shareholders and the comply-or-explain principle. The objective of the Green Paper is to have a broad debate on the issues raised. It allows all interested parties to see which areas the Commission has identified as relevant in the field of corporate governance. It is also an opportunity for everybody to express their views on the questions raised, and to provide any relevant material. Finally, the Green Paper allows to flag items the Commission has not considered so far.
