CHS Inc., a leading cooperative, owned by farmers, ranchers and co-ops across the United States recently hosted an Ethisphere Business Ethics Leadership Alliance (BELA) roundtable at its headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota where Corporate Compliance and Ethics Executives and General Counsel convened to discuss tactics for engaging the Board and promoting compliance-driven conversations.
Companies present at the “Twin Cities Roundtable” included CHS, Buffalo Wild Wings, 3M, Cargill, Xcel Energy and Thrivent Financial. The event focused on how to effectively utilize the 2016 World’s Most Ethical Companies dataset to create actionable insights. It also explored hotly debated topics on the boardroom agenda such as assessing enforcement activity, compliance risks and engagement.
“The CHS Board of Directors is committed to keeping CHS strong and vibrant for the long-term, so we can help our owners grow for years to come,” said Jim Zappa, Executive Vice President and General Counsel at CHS. “This commitment is the essence of their fiduciary duty to CHS and its owners. Not surprisingly, compliance and risk oversight is an increasing component of our Directors’ duties.”
