Good corporate governance ensures that companies are run as efficiently as possible in the interests of their shareholders. This in turn promotes greater confidence in the companies on the capital markets and creates better conditions for the supply of risk capital
The mission of The Swedish Corporate Governance Board is to manage and administrate the Swedish Corporate Governance Code in order to promote good governance of listed companies in Sweden. This Code is a set of guidelines for good corporate governance that all stock exchange listed companies are obliged to apply.
The Board also promotes good practice on the Swedish stock market through its responsibility for issues that were previously handled by the Swedish Commerce and Industry Stock Exchange Committee (NBK).
The work of the Board is an integral part of the self-regulation system on the Swedish securities market.
