Corporate Governance

Good corporate governance is essential to sustaining successful companies’ growth. Gimv is keen to be exemplary in this respect. Gimv uses the Belgian Corporate Governance Code for listed companies (2020) as its reference code (hereinafter the '2020 Code').

The text of the 2020 Code is publicly available on the website of the Belgian Corporate Governance Commission (www.corporategovernancecommittee.be). The consecutive monitoring studies conducted in 2021 and 2023 by Guberna and VBO on behalf of the Belgian Corporate Governance Committee showed that Gimv fully complies with the 2020 Code.

Specific information about Gimv's corporate governance practices is available in the Corporate Governance chapter of the Annual Report. This section contains information on activities, remuneration and any conflicts of interest.
