Corporate Governance

We take our responsibility for Corporate Governance seriously. Our organization reflects our passion for ‘simply doing more’.

Principles

Straumann’s principles of, and rules on, corporate governance are laid down in the Articles of Association, the rules for organization and operation, the Group Management Policy, the Code of Conduct, and the Charters of the Board Committees. T hese principles and rules are the basis of corporate governance disclosures, which are in compliance with the Directive on Information relating to Corporate Governance published by the SIX Swiss Exchange, where Straumann’s shares have been traded since the company’s initial public offering in 1998.

Gilbert Achermann

“Today’s world requires a more formal approach to governance. I am very sceptical about ‘over-regulation’, because it makes organizations slow, bureaucratic and less entrepreneurial.”
