Report published

British businesses must act on corporate governance, executive pay including long-term incentive plans, and boardroom diversity to maintain the country's strong international standing in corporate governance and address a worrying lack of trust of business among the public, says the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee in its report.

Scope of the inquiry

The Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee inquiry on corporate governance focusses on executive pay, directors duties and the composition of boardrooms, including worker representation and gender balance in executive positions. The inquiry follows on from the corporate governance failings highlighted by the Committee's recent inquiries into BHS and Sports Direct, and in the wake of commitments from the Prime Minister to overhaul corporate governance.
