Best Practice for GPW Listed Companies, 2016

Poland Upcoming 2016

The document was produced by experts convened by the Polish Stock Exchange (GPW) Corporate Governance Consultation Committee, representing the interests of different groups of capital market participants. The first principle of the document states that listed companies should ensure adequate communications with investors and analysts by pursuing a transparent and effective disclosure policy. They shoud do this by among others providing easy access to information using diverse tools of communication. Disclosure should include a statement on compliance with corporate governance principles (I.Z.1.12) as well as information about the company’s diversity policy (I.Z.1.15). Reporting to the annual general meeting should include an assessment of the company’s compliance with disclosure obligations in meeting the corporate governance principles.
