On June 26, Amec received the Excellence in Corporate Governance Award. Offered by the International Corporate Governance Network (ICGN), the award recognizes the work the association has developed over the past 12 years since its creation. “Amec is very honored with this award. Our satisfaction is even greater as it is the most important corporate governance recognition globally. The ICGN reflects, on a world scale, values we also support. It is especially encouraging to receive this recognition in such an important moment, when the Brazilian companies are actually adopting more transparent compensation practices,” said Mauro Rodrigues da Cunha, Amec’s CEO.
The award ceremony was held during the ICGN annual congress in Milan, Italy. The ICGN gathers professional investors with US$ 34 trillion in assets under management and leads debates about corporate governance issues on a global basis.
“The award is the recognition that the defense of minority shareholders and the investors’ responsible work through stewardship practices are of utmost importance to build a fairer capital market that drives the country’s development,” Cunha added.
