Consilium’s overall goal is to create value for shareholders. This will be achieved by building on the Group’s expertise, global market organisation, long experience and innovative ability, and by being a leader within selected market and product segments.
Good corporate governance ensures that companies are run as efficiently as possible in the interests of their shareholders. This in turn promotes greater confidence in the companies on the capital markets and creates better conditions for the supply of risk capital.
The Swedish Corporate Governance Code
The main aim of the Swedish Corporate Governance Code is to improve confidence in Swedish listed companies by promoting positive development of corporate governance in these companies. The Code acts as a complement to legislation and other regulations by specifying a norm for good corporate governance at a higher level of ambition than the statutory regulation. However, this norm is not mandatory. Companies may deviate from individual rules, providing they report each deviation, describe their own solution and explain why. In this way, the actors in the market can formulate their own opinions on the solution the company has chosen. Another aim of the Code is to provide an alternative to legislation. The Swedish Corporate Governance Board feels that self-regulation is often preferable to legislation and sees the Code as the primary instrument for this.
