Plurality, stewardship and engagement - The Ownership Commission

The Ownership Commission was established in 2010 to review the state of ownership in the UK, to examine the extent to which it supports or inhibits successful, long-term value creation by business in all its ownership guises. This involved assessing the governance and ownership of Public Limited Companies (PLCs) plus also considering the contribution of non-PLC forms.

The Ownership Commission was commissioned by Government in March 2012 and is supported by the Co-operative Group.

The Commission describes three dimensions to good ownership - plurality, stewardship and engagement. By strengthening these, a different self-reinforcing dynamic will be created that will drive better ownership and corporate behaviours.

The report makes 26 recommendations, 9 on plurality, 8 on stewardship and 9 on engagement.
