cORPORATE governance

At Wereldhave, we aim to balance the interests of providers of risk-bearing capital with those of other stakeholders in the company.  Matters such as transparency, the adequate provision of forward-looking information and business ethics form part of this philosophy.  The company’s business ethics are embedded in the Code of Ethics for employees. 

Wereldhave is compliant with the Dutch Corporate Governance Code.  When deviating from the code, the principle of ‘comply or explain’ is applied.

Complaints about financial reporting, internal risk management, control systems and audits must be submitted to the company secretary, who then informs the Supervisory Board of the complaints.  The company secretary is responsible for ensuring complaints are registered correctly.  The secretary will then notify the complainant that the complaint has been received and give an estimation of when a decision should be expected.  The Supervisory Board will notify its decision to the complainant within 12 weeks after receiving the complaint.
