Listed companies are increasingly under pressure to be more transparent and accountable to their stakeholders. With the review underway of Singapore’s code of corporate governance, it is even more critical for companies to strengthen their governance practices and work towards achieving the highest standards of governance and performance.

The best-governed and transparent Singapore-listed companies will be announced at this year’s Singapore Governance and Transparency Forum. They have been ranked by the Singapore Governance and Transparency Index (SGTI), a leading benchmark for assessing listed companies on their corporate governance disclosure and practices, as well as the timeliness, accessibility and transparency of their financial results announcements.
