Ivorian Code of Corporate Governance – Decree 2012-1123, 2012

Ivory Coast Current 2012

The Ivorian Code of Corporate Governance aims to ensure companies’ sustainable growth through a management system based on the principles of transparency, accountability, independence and fairness. The code promotes awareness of the social responsibilities of business, including the environmental and social interests of communities. It takes into account the disclosure of non-financial information through the publication of the Charter of Corporate Governance on the company’s website, and the corporate governance chapter of its annual report. The latter should include factual information on corporate governance, including changes and relevant events of the past year such as the appointment of new directors, members of committees, and the annual remuneration of the Board of Directors.
