Vebego is fully owned by the Goedmakers family. Therefore, the Dutch Corporate Governance Code does not apply to us. Nevertheless, we take ‘good governance’ extremely seriously, but in our own way. That individuality can be seen in our Code. It contains provisions from the Corporate Governance Code, but also incorporates provisions that are related to the family-based and international character of Vebego.
Vebego's vision of sustainability and our mission to increase our social impact are expressly endorsed in our Code. That mission goes beyond taking social responsibility and reducing the negative impact of our business operations on society.
Vebego wants to materially contribute to a better world. Important principles in this are continually building sustainable relationships, both with our internal and external stakeholders and the continuity as a family business that strives for long-term value creation.
