Public corporate governance

The principles of good corporate governance are the foundation for responsible management by the Federal Republic as a shareholder in corporations under private law. The standards of good corporate governance with the demands and expectations placed on company institutions are laid down in the Federal Government's Public Corporate Governance Codex (PCGC). The DZHW's management and supervisory board therefore declare in an annual report that the PCGC's recommendations in the currently applicable version have been or will be applied or which recommendations were not applied for what reasons. The declaration is permanently available on the DZHW's website. You can find further information on the PCGC on the Federal Ministry of Finance website (in German).
