The Supervisory Board and the Management Board share the responsibility for the Corporate Governance structure of our company. Since 2004, both parties have reported on how Ordina deals with Corporate Governance matters.
Ordina subscribes to the Dutch Corporate Governance Code. We subscribe to virtually all the principles and stipulations.
