- Corporate governance in the Netherlands is beginning to develop its own history. On 8 December 2016, the third Dutch Corporate Governance Code was published. The 2016 Code introduces many new ideas and responds to current developments in corporate governance issues. The Code is not static - it follows the dynamics of our society. The most important new themes in the 2016 Code are long-term value creation and culture. This book covers those themes in detail, particularly where they resonate in other areas, such as risk management. In addition, this book addresses other updated items of the Code. This book also comments on the principles and best practice provisions of the Code and clarifies its structure and background.
