The Dutch Corporate Governance Code Monitoring Committee has today published a new edition of its corporate governance code. A copy of the code (in English) is available here (pdf). The Committee has published a document, in English, explaining the main changes made in the new edition of the code: see here (pdf). At the centre of the new code is long-term value creation and, whilst its focus is on companies with a two-tier board structure, chapter five is addressed to those companies (about 10%) that have chosen to have a single board.
