At Leifheit, the term Corporate Governance stands for responsible corporate management and control geared towards creating sustainable value creation. To us, trusting cooperation between the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board, efficient internal and external control mechanisms, and a high level of transparency in corporate communications are matters of central importance. This way, we hope to secure the long-term confidence of our stakeholders in our company.
We give corporate governance a high priority and are guided by the recommendations of the German Corporate Governance Code (DCGK). Leifheit largely complies with this evaluation criteria for good corporate governance. The deviations from the code are published in the statutory declarations of compliance and corporate governance reports.
