On October 6, Kyiv hosted the International Sustainability Forum 2022, which aims to restore and develop the economy based on sustainability principles. Dr. Valentyn Gvozdiy, the Managing Partner at GOLAW, who is also the Head of the Supervisory Board at Ukrhydroenergo PJSC, took part in the discussion.
Being adept in legal regulation and implementation of corporate governance in Ukraine, Valentyn told about the importance and prospects of implementing the best practices of corporate governance in the energy sector. The speaker also taking as an example Ukrhydroenergo PJSC emphasized that corporate governance reform led to the company’s sustainable development and improvement of financial efficiency.
Today, companies that implement “green” projects are the real drivers of the economy. Ukrhydroenergo is a vivid example of a company that has chosen the path of sustainable development.
Moreover, I am quite sure that state-owned companies have to be corporatized since an efficient system of corporate governance is designed to work for the shareholder and carry out strategic management of the company in its best interestsconcluded the speaker
