The X Principles of Corporate Governance ("X Principles") of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LSE) were revised in December 2017 in order to introduce a new ninth principle on corporate social responsibility (CSR).

The revised X Principles are effective as from 1 January 2018 and applicable to financial years starting as from that date. Consequently, companies are expected to implement the new CSR rules in the course of their first financial year starting on or after 1 January 2018 and to include the relevant CSR information in their annual report for that year.
