Asian Centre for Corporate Governance & Sustainability was established on March 14, 2001 as a ‘Not for Profit’ independent institution. Asian Centre has been set up with a vision to become a ‘Think Tank’ and a ‘Catalytic Institution’ to bring about qualitative improvements in the Corporate Governance & Corporate Sustainability practices of Asian Companies, optimizing the value for shareholders & stake holders in a balanced manner. Playing a strong advocacy role, Asian Centre encourages companies to generate wealth in a socially responsible manner by protecting the environment and ensuring sustainable development of communities & Societies.
The founders, notably the members of Global Advisory Board of Asian Centre, chaired by Mr. Mervyn King, believe that there is a strong correlation between Corporate Governance & Public Governance. These are like two faces of the same coin and are so inextricably intertwined that, it is difficult to think of improving one, without the other. Value based conduct is as important for Public leaders as for Corporate leaders.
The Global Advisory Board also believes that Corporate Sustainability is crucial to the Sustainable Society and cleaner cities. Thus, Asian Centre attempts to work with Corporate leaders on one hand and government officials on the other, to contribute towards ‘Better Governance’, ‘Sustainable Societies’ and ‘Cleaner Cities’.
