Corporate Governance

Transparent processes for a successful business

In order to make the best of business opportunities and ensure the long-term success of the company, we have established an integrated risk management process. In accordance with regulatory requirements, we continuously monitor potential business risks such as market and trading risks, credit, process, environmental and project risks. Our internal control system (ICS) checks in particular essential billing processes; independent internal auditing monitors that processes are correct and existing checks are effective. Risk evaluation, ICS and audit reports are sent to management and the Supervisory Board and made available for auditing.

Corporate culture at its best: corporate compliance

TransnetBW’s compliance management system ensures that legal provisions and internal regulations are always complied with. The company has implemented a binding Code of Conduct for all managers and employees. The Code of Conduct provides direction for the employees in their daily work and sets out a binding framework for action. In this way TransnetBW commits to responsible corporate governance, defines its expectations as an employer and sets standards for conducting business. With numerous preventative measures, TransnetBW supports all employees to conduct themselves properly and in the best interest of the company, within TransnetBW and in particular in their interaction with business partners.
