What does Eumedion do

Eumedion is an independent foundation, managed by representatives of participants. It is our objective to maintain and further develop good corporate governance in the area of the responsibility of asset owners and asset managers established in the Netherlands. We also want 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.

Eumedion operates as a representative of the interests of institutional investors in the field of corporate governance and sustainability. The name 'Eumedion' means ‘Good Guardian’ in Greek. About 60 institutional investors currently participate. Together, they represent and manage more than 5.000 billion euros in assets.

Eumedion has three associated participants, so called umbrella organisations for pension funds. The foundation is funded by annual contributions by these members participants.
