ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard


The ACGS, or ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard, is a corporate governance rating system designed to raise the corporate-governance standards of the members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). It is implemented to all publicly-listed companies across member-countries by the ASEAN Capital Markets Forum (ACMG), a body composed of the region•€™s capital market regulators. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is the official Philippine representative to the ACMF, and has appointed the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD) as the domestic ranking body of the Philippines for the ACGS.
