Following our established tradition of organizing business delegations to key business destinations, Baltic Institute of Corporate Governance (BICG) is pleased to announce an upcoming visit to South Africa, an economic powerhouse of Africa.

Together with China, India, Brazil and Russia, South Africa forms the BRICS group of five major emerging economies, and is also the home to a ground breaking corporate governance code, which has been cited as the most effective summary of international corporate governance practices.

Our delegation will visit Johannesburg, one of the world’s leading financial centres, and Cape Town, a bustling manufacturing hub.

We are planning to meet with the key businesspeople, opinion makers, as well as representatives of some of the best managed local companies and institutions of corporate governance, including Institute of Directors in Southern Africa, the organisation representing directors, professionals, business owners and leaders in the region.

The delegation is scheduled for the end of February and the beginning of March next year.

Recent processes of improving corporate governance of State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are demanding high competencies in governance, organizational development and many other important areas. During 25 years since restitution of independence in all three Baltic States, we have gained some experience in these fields, but the current period demands even deeper and wider knowledge. Nordic countries are a good example of a long lasting and successful governance of SOEs.

We are very happy to invite the representatives of Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian shareholding ministries, as well as council, board members and top management of the SOEs to a conference in Stockholm, organized by Business Sweden and the Baltic Institute of Corporate Governance, to learn and discuss the Swedish experience of governing SOEs.

Handling generational change in a company

Handling generational change in a company
A family owned business going through a generational change becomes vulnerable, if no timely decisions are made for ensuring a smooth transference of responsibilities. The ways to handle such change and ensure sustainable business development were discussed at a conference organized by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Lithuania, COBALT Law Firm and the Baltic Institute of Corporate Governance (BICG)...

A family owned business going through a generational change becomes vulnerable, if no timely decisions are made for ensuring a smooth transference of responsibilities.

The ways to handle such change and ensure sustainable business development were discussed at a conference organized by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Lithuania, COBALT Law Firm and the Baltic Institute of Corporate Governance (BICG) on November the 5th in Vilnius.

“Many family owned businesses created in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia after the restoration of independence more than 20 years ago are now going through generational changes and need to be aware of the ways to solve any related problems, if the value of their business is to be preserved,” says Rytis Ambrazevičius, Vice President of the BICG and one of the speakers of the conference.

The themes discussed at the event included such topics as how to avoid the shareholder disputes, how can a professional investor be useful, and why is it beneficial to implement best corporate governance practices and create boards with independent board members.

“Application of good corporate governance practices is only in its initial stages in Lithuania. Many business owners believe still that their own personal commitment to the company is enough, and that no other experts are necessary. But generational change is one of the times when the need to have a strong governance structure and attract external talents becomes exposed. Creating a board with independent members who are highly competent in different areas important for the company and compliment the competencies of the manager, directly contributes to raising the value and improving the sustainability of a business,” says Mr Ambrazevičius.

By implementing the best corporate governance practices, a business becomes better equipped to make the best strategic decisions, manage risks, attract financing and improves not only own transparency and reputation, but also the general business environment.

“Increased implementation of the best corporate governance in a country helps grow investors’ confidence and therefore the entire economy”, says Mr Ambrazevičius.

He emphasizes that the first things to be done when creating a board are to clearly define the goals of the shareholders and the external competencies that a business wants to attract.

“Independent board members need to agree with the fundamental direction of the company and support the vision of the owners, but they also must be able to openly express their professional opinions that the owners sometimes might not want to hear,” says Mr Ambrazevičius.

BICG is a non-profit and non-governmental organization missioned to deliver value to its stakeholders by promoting global competitiveness of enterprises in the Baltics and encouraging the businesses to adopt leading corporate governance practices.

During the conference, Paulius Martinkus, president of the BICG, presented Dr Irmantas Norkus, Managing Partner of the COBALT law firm, with a BICG National Corporate Member certificate for the COBALT Law Firm.

Rytis Ambrazevičius, Vice President of the BICG, discussed why is it beneficial to implement best corporate governance practices and have independent board members.


The conference was organized by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Lithuania, COBALT Law Firm and the BICG.

Strengthening of the BICG in Latvia

Strengthening of the BICG in Latvia
Baltic Institute of Corporate Governance (BICG) is proud to announce a growing support for the best corporate governance practices in Latvia and a strengthening of ranks among our Latvian members. “We are happy to have an increased support for our efforts to promote the best corporate governance practices in the Baltics.

Baltic Institute of Corporate Governance (BICG) is proud to announce a growing support for the best corporate governance practices in Latvia and a strengthening of ranks among our Latvian members.

“We are happy to have an increased support for our efforts to promote the best corporate governance practices in the Baltics. An expanding pool of Latvian members will allow us to be even more active in the region”, – says Paulius Martinkus, the President of the BICG.

Citadele Bank, a power supply company Latvenergo and a plywood production and forest management enterprise Latvijas Finieris have all previously been National Corporate Members of the BICG and now have advanced to be Development Corporate Members.

“It is in the interests of shareholders and also the management of the company to reduce risks and ensure the company is well-governed. We are committed to these principles in Citadele Bank and keenly support BICG in their effort to ensure the principles are understood and accepted in the Baltic business environment,“ says Guntis Beļavskis, CEO of Citadele Bank.

Āris Žīgurs, Chairman of the Management Board and CEO of Latvenergo, emphasized that good corporate governance by ensuring the availability and transparency of information, improving stakeholder engagement and implementing corporate social responsibility is a priority for Latvenergo Group.

“We have been a member of the BICG since its beginning by actively participating in institute’s activities, education programs and supporting the development of the Baltic Guidance on the Governance of Government-Owned Enterprises. Thus, it is only logical that we will continue supporting the popularising of good corporate governance principles in Latvia and we are proud to become a Development Member of the BICG“, says Mr Žīgurs.

Uldis Biķis, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Latvijas Finieris, notes that the company has defined in its mission the importance of enabling customers, forest owners, cooperation partners, employees and other stakeholders to develop a long-term partnership: responsible work, responsible profit and responsible investments.

„We have also developed and published our Sustainability Policy, stressing that Latvijas Finieris is well aware of the environmental, social and economic interests of all stakeholders, and balancing them together creates a platform for company’s sustainable activities. Sustainability issues and dialogue with stakeholders are among priorities of Latvijas Finieris development. Well-organised and effective corporate governance will significantly help to reach these targets, therefore we have decided to become a Development Member of the BICG, thus engaging even more actively into promoting good corporate governance in our region,“ says Mr Uldis Biķis.

Newly joining the BICG and the ranks of Development Corporate Members are a pharmaceutical company Olainfarm, as well as the administrator and manager of Latvia’s state forests “Latvijas valsts meži”.

“Good corporate governance is a principle that ensures that efficiency, honesty and transparency become real cornerstones of corporate activity. Keeping to these principles in our economy in general and in public administration as well, increases productivity of economy, its competitiveness and raises the prestige of the country among investors and other partners. Ignoring principles of good corporate governance over the last few years has already cost a lot for Latvian people and Latvian economy, so we simply cannot afford to ignore them any further,“ says Valērijs Maligins, Chairman of the Management Board at Olainfarm.

Roberts Strīpnieks, President of “Latvijas valsts meži”, stresses that the company, among other businesses devoted to sustainable development, believes that it is essential to participate in active exchange of views with scientists, analysts and other entrepreneurs in regard to further improvements of the business environment in the Baltic region, which is one of the fastest growing regions in Europe.

According to Mr Strīpnieks, the common goal of LVM and BICG is to create appropriate instruments for the business environment in the Baltic States for achieving fair and transparent business environment, while respecting the specific and unique company foundation history and economic development of the Baltics.

“In terms of corporate governance we should take into account that the customer has the primary role in business, only then comes shareholders, interest groups, management and others. Good corporate governance ensures development of high quality strategy that meets the interests of company’s customers, and its implementation, by both the shareholder and the company’s management team, and the result is successful only if the customer is satisfied,” emphasizes Mr Strīpnieks.

Presently, BICG unites 37 corporate members in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, including stock exchanges, banks, auditing companies, law offices, manufacturers, state-owned enterprises.

The individual members of the association are serving as CEOs and board members of the largest companies in the Baltic states.

BICG is a non-profit and non-governmental organization missioned to deliver value to its stakeholders by promoting global competitiveness of enterprises in the Baltics and encouraging the businesses to adopt leading corporate governance practices.
