Eumedion represents institutional investors' interests in the field of corporate governance and related sustainability performance. It is the objective of Eumedion to maintain and further develop good corporate governance and sustainability performance on the basis of the responsibility of institutional investors established in the Netherlands. At the same time, Eumedion wants to advance the acceptance of, and compliance with, generally accepted corporate governance standards by listed companies and institutional investors in the Netherlands and Europe in particular.
Although Eumedion has the legal form of a foundation, it has many features of an association. The Members’ Meeting, for example, has a right to adopt the annual policy plan (including the budget) and a right to approve the annual accounts, the authority to grant the Board discharge from liability for its management every year and the power to dismiss the entire Board. Each member has one vote.
