The ICSA Corporate Governance Handbook is a comprehensive and practical new reference work, covering all aspects of this increasingly important part of corporate life. The detailed commentary is divided into a series of chapters devoted to the issues at the heart of corporate governance: * the role of company directors; * the composition of boards, including the role of non-executive directors; * directors' remuneration; * shareholder relations; * reporting, disclosure and audit; * internal control and risk management. The Handbook also includes full coverage of corporate social responsibility and whistleblowing, outlines the key provisions of the US's Sarbanes-Oxley Act for UK companies with a US listing, and looks at the increasingly important role of EU directives in shaping the UK corporate governance agenda. Throughout, the aim of the Handbook is to provide a single resource for practical advice and guidance to help companies develop and enhance their corporate governance strategies. To this end, the commentary is accompanied by an extensive set of appendices covering all the relevant codes of practice and guidelines.
Purchasers of the book will also receive access to ICSA Publishing's Corporate Governance Briefings, a bi-monthly e-mail update service which provides a regular digest of the latest corporate governance news and views.
