SUSTAINABLE CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

A company is not only judged by its business performance. Stakeholders such as employees, customers, shareholders, investors, suppliers and the public also want to know how and according to which principles the company operates. Sustainable and responsible corporate governance – the “G” for governance within the ESG standards – is therefore fundamental to Valora.

«Good governance»inspires us to follow the right values and principles in our day-to-day activities and to take responsibility for our decisions. It goes beyond mere adherence to laws and regulations and is oriented towards high standards of ethical conduct and human integrity. The interests of the company and its stakeholders are thus reconciled in a fair and just manner. Clear processes within the company and the internal regulatory framework help us to implement good governance.
