Sovereign Governance Advisory announces the 2021 update to the Australian Corporate Governance Transparency Index (ACGTI), an online benchmarking tool for Company Secretaries and Non-Executive Directors accessible through our company website.
Sovereign Governance Advisory conducted a comprehensive update to the ACGTI methodology and scoring for the S&P/ASX 300 index. The methodology has been expanded from a total of 28 to 30 individual objective governance disclosure indicators. The pillars have also been reduced from four to three, namely Governance, Remuneration and Sustainability.
As an objective index, the ranking does not opine on the quality of qualitative disclosure or quantified ESG performance. The focus of the ACGTI is on corporate governance transparency by comparing the presence, and thereby ranking, specific governance information that is relevant to institutional shareholder decision making. Aspects that are applied to the ACGTI methodology substantially link to the ASX Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations (4th edition), the Australian Council of Superannuation Investors Governance Guidelines (2019) and proxy advisor voting policy guidelines.
