On Transparency Day, the United States committed to making corporate transparency a global norm. The proclamation calls on companies to “commit to posting material and disclosure reports on their websites or in printed form without delay to the public at large, in both English and foreign languages”.
This global policy shift comes as a reaction to mounting concerns about the secrecy of corporate governance and the integrity of business practices. Corporate transparency is an essential Venn diagram of corporate governance, as it helps companies to make informed decisions about where to proceed, where to relocated, and where to invest.
This commitment to transparency also goes beyond simply publishing reports. Corporate transparency should include forums where companies can share information and discuss transparency policies, practices, and best practices. This will help to build a community of sharers and providers of corporate information that can provide accurate and meaningful insights to policymakers.
transparency day aims to promote understanding and accountability at all levels of corporate America. it’s a call to companies to continue to make their disclosure reports available online and to engage in transparency dialogues and policy discussions.
This week has shown that we as a family of democracies can take on the challenges of transparency and be POTUSisible. We must make sure our policies reflect the spirit of this day, that is to make the public aware of corporate malfeasance and the need for reform.
