Key Agreed Principles to Strengthen Corporate Governance For U.S. Publicly Traded Companies

By NACD Staff


Corporate Governance Board Operations

The Key Agreed Principles to Strengthen Corporate Governance for U.S. Publicly Traded Companies, published by NACD, are a set of principles intended to guide corporate leaders, and are the cumulative effort of many organizations and individuals to find a truly shared set of ideas to improve the internal functioning of America’s boardrooms.

The principles help directors test their current practices rather than check “a required box” on a mandated evaluation form, and help corporate boards make governance decisions in the context of their own corporate strategy. NACD recommends that directors use the principles as a framework for determining board practices on an ongoing basis.
