Overview

 
The new Company Act requires that the boards of all listed public companies, state owned enterprises and companies with significant public interest should have a social and ethics sub-committee. The introduction of social and ethics committees emphasizes that companies have a significant social impact on the societies in which they operate. They thus have to be responsible corporate citizens – as the Third King Report on Corporate Governance also stated. This workshop will explore how social and ethics committees should operate and how they could fit into the overall corporate governance of a company.
