Corporate Governance

Processes and regulations which direct our way of working

We want to make the rules applicable in Germany transparent and comprehensible and show how these are adopted by init SE. Furthermore, we want to introduce our Management and Supervisory Board members to you.

Code of Conduct

Our Ethical Guidelines are the basis of our corporate culture. As the framework of our daily actions they define the special character of init worldwide.

Reporting system

We want to be measured by our high standards. Therefore, we ask our customers, employees, suppliers and any third party to report any grievances, and in particular violations of applicable law. For this purpose, we have installed a web-based reporting system with an independent service provider. Violations can be completely anonymously reported, provided that country-specific regulations do not restrict this.

Declaration of Compliance 2018

In compliance with the Section 161 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG), the Managing Board and the Supervisory Board of a listed corporation are required to declare compliance with the recommendations of the Government Commission on the German Corporate Governance Code (DCGK) published by the Federal Ministry of Justice in the official section of the Federal Official Gazette each year, and to disclose any deviation from these recommendations. The Declaration of Compliance with the Code must be accessible on the company’s website for a period of five years. Since the introduction of the DCGK 2002, our company regularly complies with almost all recommendations.

In our archive you will find the Corporate Governance Reports up to the year 2012 including the Declaration of Compliance and the Corporate Management Declaration.

Report of the Supervisory Board
