The CGRS is poised to raise the Corporate Governance “ceiling” in Nigeria; give companies the opportunity to differentiate themselves by showing good corporate Governance practices and help them gain access to funds committed to good Corporate Governance practices and sustainability.
The launch of the Corporate Governance Rating System (CGRS) will mark the beginning of a new era in market transparency and a new model for 21st century corporate reporting in Nigeria, and in Africa.
The event organized by The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) in partnership with the Convention on Business Integrity (CBi), will welcome more than 500 corporate sector participants joined by government and civil society delegates from across Nigeria and globally. Over the course of the event, a series of high-level discussions will touch upon the theme “Better for Business”, providing participants with unique insights on issues of leadership and corporate governance within the African context. It will also provide highlights on the framework which is designed to evaluate companies based on the quality of their corporate integrity; corporate compliance; understanding of fiduciary responsibilities by their directors and their corporate reputation.
