Corporate governance

Declaration on corporate governance (§ 289a HGB) contains the declaration of compliance with the German Corporate Governance Code, information on corporate governance practices and the description of the working method of Executive Board and Supervisory Board, as well as the composition and the working method of their committees. The objective of R. STAHL AG is to keep the description of the corporate governance concise and clear.

The company applies all statutory corporate governance practices. Furthermore, the Code of Conduct of 2009 is especially crucial. It applies throughout the Group, and its contents have been taught worldwide. The Code of Conduct can be found on the company’s website under Investor Relations – Corporate Governance.

In addition, all executives of the Group commit themselves once a year with an individual written statement to neither taking part in nor accepting acts of corruption.

Finally, there are numerous standards, especially in fields finance and IT, which govern the organisational processes within the Group.
