Toolkit 2 : developing corporate governance codes of best practice (Vol. 3) : Process (English)

This Global Corporate Governance Forum toolkit emphasizes the purpose and benefits of developing corporate governance codes of best practice. Whilst globalization of economies has increased, and international corporate guidelines have been adopted, each country has its own values, societal norms, way of doing business, and special circumstances. Thus, to guide policy makers, market players, and corporations in adopting sound corporate governance practices at the local level, every country should endeavor to develop its own corporate governance code. The toolkit sets out a step-by-step approach that can be followed by stakeholders to develop, implement, and review a Corporate Governance Code of Best Practice. The toolkit focuses on the various steps involved in crafting, disseminating, implementing, monitoring, and reviewing corporate governance codes of best practice.
