» IoD report uses 9001 as an indicator of Good Governance

11 October, 2017

The latest Good Governance Report, the Institute of Director’s (IOD) flagship corporate governance publication which ranks the UK's largest listed companies based on their corporate governance performance, now uses accredited certification to ISO 9001 as one of the data sources.

The report, which is compiled for the IoD by Cass Business School and in its third year, has expanded the number of indicators to give a more comprehensive view of how well the company performs for its shareholders, employees and customers. These indicators are grouped into five broad categories of corporate governance: Board Effectiveness; Audit and Risk/External Accountability; Remuneration and Reward; Shareholder Relations; and Stakeholder Relations. Specific indicators are chosen in order to reflect a broad conception of corporate governance which not only takes into account the interests of shareholders but also considers how governance is working for other key stakeholders. The implementation of an accredited management system has been included to demonstrate strong corporate governance. 

A full copy of the report is available from the IoD website.
