Organizations are having to contend with increasing regulation in areas such as anti-corruption, antitrust, privacy, information security and export controls. Further, customers as well as authorities are stepping up their oversight and enforcement activities.
For example, regarding sustainability, the revised Dutch Corporate Governance Code requires organizations to focus on long-term value creation, taking into account the human, environmental and financial aspects, as well as the need for honest and fair business. Not just in relation to the business itself, but across the entire value chain.
One of the elements that should be in place regards a whistleblower hotline as required by the Dutch Whistleblowers Authority Act for organisations with over 50 employees. a short self assessment ( in dutch) provides you with an overview of what you should have in place to be in compliance with this requirement.
What do businesses have to do to ensure they fulfil society’s expectations and their own ambitions in terms of sustainable entrepreneurship? How can this contribute to the objective of long term value creation?
