The Greenbury Report

In January 1995 the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) established the Study Group on Directors' Remuneration under the chairmanship of Sir Richard Greenbury with a remit to identify good practice in determining directors' remuneration and to prepare a code of practice for UK PLCs. The final report of the group was published on 17 July 1995 and is usually referred to as the Greenbury report.
