The All-Party Parliamentary Corporate Governance Group (APPCGG) aims to:

influence and develop understanding of corporate governance through the promotion of a culture based on responsible leadership and investment thus enabling corporates and their shareholders to enhance prosperity for the benefit of shareholders, economies and society.


The APPCGG was set up in 2004 with the aim of promoting best practice in corporate governance. It strapline is: 'influencing the policy agenda for business, economic and social prosperity.

To this end it holds a series of ‘working’ breakfasts, lunchtime and evening seminars 'where key issues and agenda items are debated by members of the Group and leading figures from both government and business'.
