EcoDa Webinar- 28/09/2021 – Underpinning entrepreneurship and resilience: Key governance challenges for unlisted companies

Corporate Governance is an increasing issue for unlisted companies as they develop new sources of finance. It is also a way to gain the respect of key external stakeholders.

However, copying principles of best practice for listed companies is not a viable solution as unlisted companies have their own features and challenges.

Given the wide scope of unlisted companies, the definition and implementation of a corporate governance framework has indeed to take account the firm’s size, complexity, level of maturity and objectives regarding its own development.

With its updated Corporate Governance Guidance and Principles for Unlisted Companies in Europe, ecoDa is providing advice for the governance implementation process, leaving the companies the freedom to decide on the pace and depth.

Our webinar will get the challenges and opportunities out for discussion. Testimonies of unlisted companies will flesh out specific practices highlighting the importance of discipline and consistency.
