SYNOPSIS

Corporate governance is the mechanisms, processes and relations by which corporations are controlled and directed. Governance structures and principles identify the distribution of rights and responsibilities among different participants in the corporation (such as the board of directors, managers, shareholders, creditors, auditors, regulators, employees and other stakeholders) and include the rules and procedures for making decisions in corporate affairs. Corporate governance includes the processes through which corporations' objectives are set and pursued in the context of the social, regulatory and market environment. Governance mechanisms include monitoring the actions, policies, practices, and decisions of corporations, their agents and affected stakeholders. Corporate governance practices are affected by attempts to align the interests of all stakeholders. Interest in the corporate governance practices of modern corporations, particularly in relation to accountability, increased following the high-profile collapses of a number of large corporations during 2001–2002, most of which involved accounting fraud; and then again after the recent financial crisis in 2008. Corporate scandals of various forms have maintained public and political interest in the regulation of corporate governance. In the U.S., these include Enron and WorldCom. Their demise led to the enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in 2002, a U.S. federal law intended to restore public confidence in corporate governance. There are similar and comparable failures of similar nature around the world and in Malaysia that has been very costly to all stakeholders involved. It is therefore of paramount importance that sound corporate governance practices is adopted to ensure long term viability of an organization.

This talk will look at several high-profile cases abroad and in Malaysia, examining the causes of the problem of poor governance. Principles of good and sound corporate governance for sustainability will be discussed.
