On 24 November 2011, the European Commission published a feedback statement with a summary of the responses to its Green Paper on the EU Corporate Governance Framework.

The Green Paper, which was launched in April 2011, had focused on listed companies and, in particular, on boards of directors, shareholders and corporate governance statements. The Commission will now consider whether any legislative proposals are needed.
