Corporate Governance

Realdolmen approved this Corporate Governance Charter in accordance with the recommendations from the Belgian Code on Corporate Governance that was issued by the Belgian Corporate Governance Committee on 9 December 2004. 

The most important goal of this Belgian Code is to support value creation in the long term by providing Belgian companies quoted on the stock exchange with a model for sound management. In the Code, Corporate Governance is defined as a series of rules and stipulations used to guide and monitor companies.

According to the Code, a good collective management model will achieve its goal by maintaining a correct balance between entrepreneurship and control, as well as between performance and conformity.

The code is based on “comply or explain” : Belgian companies quoted on the stock exchange should follow the Code, but can deviate from the stipulations and guidelines on condition that they explain in a motivated way the  deviation. They cannot deviate from the basic principles.

Realdolmen complies with the Belgian Code with regard to Corporate Governance and reports no deviations. The Board of Directors accepted this Corporate Governance Charter in December 2005.
