Agfa-Gevaert has a long tradition of good citizenship. As a company we strive for profitable growth, but at the same time attach great value to the impact our activities have on the environment, to the health and safety of our employees and to the relations with all of our stakeholders.
We consider Corporate Governance to be an important tool to improve constantly and systematically the way our company is managed and the way our company looks after the interest of shareholders and stakeholders. We are conscious of the fact that the way companies operate in today’s society is undergoing profound changes to which we should respond.
From the date of our listing on the Euronext Brussels stock exchange in June 1999, Agfa-Gevaert has paid great attention to transparent policies that determine the governance of the company. Most of Agfa-Gevaert’s existing policies were already in conformity with the Belgian Code on Corporate Governance for stock quoted companies as it was issued at the end of 2004. In conformity with the provisions of the Belgian Corporate Governance Code (“Code 2009”), the Corporate Governance Charter is updated as often as needed to reflect the company’s corporate governance at any time. Moreover, the Agfa Board regularly conducts a comprehensive review of the Corporate Governance Charter, to assess whether it still is aligned with the latest principles, provisions and guidelines on Corporate Governance.
You find our Corporate Governance Charter available in this section of our company’s website. We invite you to become acquainted with its content. Your feedback on our Corporate Governance Charter is much appreciated.
