On the occasion of the consultation on Sustainable Corporate Governance held by the EU Commission, Deutsches Aktieninstitut expressed its concerns about the consultation questionnaire and the consultation procedure in a letter to DG Justice. Some of the policy measures mentioned are unclear: for example the proposal that companies are obliged to have a general public benefit and to follow a statute issued by an office. In several sections, the questions seem to be more about the respondent's personal opinion than about collecting facts.
