Established in 1995 as an investor-led organisation, ICGN's mission is to promote effective standards of corporate governance and investor stewardship to advance efficient markets and sustainable economies world-wide. Our policy positions are guided by the ICGN Global Governance Principles and Global Stewardship Principles, which were first published in 2003, as a statement on shareholder stewardship responsibilities both of which are implemented by:

  • Influence policy by providing a reliable source of investor opinion on governance and stewardship;
  • Connect peers at global events to enhance dialogue between companies and investors around long term value creation; and 
  • Inform dialogue through education to enhance the professionalism of governance and stewardship practices.
