ONLINE NETWORK TO PAIR INVESTORS WITH ‘GREEN’ PROJECTS -
A web based network is to be launched to develop widespread investment in environmental technologies and services in a bid to help British companies solve various environmental challenges, such as climate change, water pollution and waste.
Set up by leading environmental law firm Clarkslegal, in conjunction with The Environmental Industries Commission (EIC), ‘ The Environmental Investment Network’ will bring together private and corporate investors with organisations looking for funding to support specific projects, such as the development of low carbon technologies, eco-friendly waste management systems and advanced water treatment methods.
What is meant by the term “corporate governance”? It is basically the systems and processes established by corporate entities for ensuring proper accountability, probity and openness in the conduct of an organisation’s business. The basic principles of corporate governance include transparency, accountability, fairness and responsibility founded upon the concept of disclosure to encourage the necessary trust and confidence of shareholders.
Recently, corporate governance has been very much in the spotlight in the UK following the publication of a number of important reports, all of which have had an influence on the corporate governance environment in which we operate today. However, the current UK corporate governance environment does not exist in isolation, as there have been significant influences from Europe and the US. In particular, the collapse of Enron and WorldCom in 2002 has meant issues of corporate governance remain highly topical.
