All enterprises in Ireland, whether they operate in the commercial sector, the commercial semi-state sector or as not-for-profit organisations, need to attract funding to expand and grow. Investors, including shareholders, government and charitable donors, lenders, as well as directors and key stakeholders of every business enterprise, want to ensure that the business not only operates on a solid financial footing but that it is soundly managed in an ethical and responsible way. Recent events have shown that a focus on financial performance alone is not in itself sufficient – it is now accepted that compliance with best practice in terms of corporate governance is also required. Embracing best practice in corporate governance can help prevent corporate collapse, avoid reputational damage and maintain or restore investor confidence.
