Key areas of the Committee’s work

The AmCham Corporate Ethics and Transparency Committee warns that corporate management must become the guiding principle in company management, the prerequisite for this being an environment whose legislation and regulations emphasize the importance of public trust, transparency, and justice. Corporate management is one of the fundamental and key elements in improving economic efficiency and growth, and is paramount for attracting key strategic investors.

The Committee follows trends in compliance through international connections and similar initiatives and institutions. Multinationally, compliance with environmental protection, the protection of human and worker’s rights, corporate management, and other compliance areas have become in the past two years 1 of 3 important areas of each transaction. Before this period, these questions were of marginal importance.In Slovenia we have not yet noticed this trend but at the EU level there are regulations being developed regarding the compulsory meticulous examination of respect for human rights in the supply chain.
