“The Board Charter will, I believe, help business leaders to navigate the difficult waters in which they have to sail and I therefore warmly welcome it."
– Excerpt from foreword, by Fiona Woolf, CBE, Lord Mayor of London (2013-2014)
Developed to influence a shift from short-term to long-term thinking and strengthen the trust between business and society, the Board Charter asks tough questions of business while providing insightful guidance on the key factors that influence sustainable success:
- Boardroom leadership
- Purpose, value and ethics
- Fostering innovation
- The fair treatment of stakeholders
The final publication incorporates the collective support and contribution from a number of leading organizations working in this space, regulatory bodies and individuals from the corporate, investment and academic communities, following an active consultation process.

“The success of our economy depends on well-managed companies with good boards of directors. So, for the success of the economy we need boards which come close to what is in the Charter – the closer they get, the more successful we will be.”
