In this session, the international ethic experts will discuss the Report for discussion that was posted on the ICANN website on 6 June 2012. This report is a part of ICANN's ongoing focus on improving how the ICANN Board addresses conflicts of interest, as well as enhancing ICANN's ethical culture. The team is comprised of Jermyn Brooks (former World Chair of Price Waterhouse; currently Board member of Transparency International and Chair of its Business Advisory Board; Chair of the Global Network Initiative), Mervyn King (ex-judge from South Africa, the most prominent name in corporate governance worldwide, currently honorary chair of the Global Reporting Initiative and Chair of the International Integrated Reporting Council) and Aron Cramer (president and CEO of Business for Social Responsibility, prolific speaker and writer on corporate responsibility and sustainability issues as well as advisor to many companies including the ICT industry).
The team's work has been conducted in coordination with the Board Governance Committee, and is the third part of ICANN's comprehensive review of its conflicts and ethics practices. Just recently, ICANN adopted a Revised Conflicts of Interest Policy and additional governance documents, and also released two reports by Cooley LLC on ICANN's corporate governance practices.
