As part of its 10th anniversary celebration, the AEM (Association of Companies Issuing Securities Listed on the Market) will be promoting a Conference on Corporate Culture which is included its Conferences’ programme ‘Reimagining the Market’ and the WIW events programme organised by the CMVM.

The culture of a company reflects the shared values that determine the behaviour of the members of the organisation.With this in mind, the corporate culture plays a fundamental role in defining the ethical behaviour of the organisation and its employees and, constitutes a vital element for the successful development of the company's activity and business.

The growing association of corporate culture with the ideas of ethical behaviour, purpose, strategy, sustainable development, risk management, long-term investment, reputation, continuity of the organisation, and preservation of the community, has not corresponded to a theoretical or practical reflection concerning the concept and reality of corporate culture, and its ineradicable association with the themes of corporate governance and investor protection.

What are we referring to when we talk about corporate culture, how does one define a possible concept of business culture, what mechanisms does it imply or influence, what normative meaning does it have or can it have, what place does it have in current law or in future regulations – these are some of the issues that will be addressed during this session, and so too, underlining the relevance of the role of corporate culture for the smooth functioning of the market and for attracting investors and financing.
