  • Build trust in companies and business generally.
  • Build trust between investors and company leaders.
  • Improve the competitiveness of Icelandic business by ensuring that corporate governance in Iceland broadly adheres to the principles followed in neighbouring countries.
  • Give investors a clearer picture of the corporate governance practices of Icelandic businesses to assist them in evaluating investment options.
  • Give Icelandic businesses better access to funding in Iceland and abroad.
