Corporate governance

Right from the beginning, Ontex has been driven by an entrepreneurial spirit – the desire to challenge the status quo and make a real difference.

You need motivated and visionary leaders to turn ideas into success, to drive a company forward to the next level of success. Our leadership teams are doing just that.

Corporate Governance

We know that we are judged by our integrity and trustworthiness as much as by our financial performance.

In June 2014, Ontex adopted its Corporate Governance Charter. It was amended in October 2020 to reflect the principles of the 2020 Belgian Corporate Governance Code (the “Code”) and most recently in March 2023 to reflect the dissolution of the Strategy Committee. The Charter is reviewed annually by the Board to ensure that it remains in line with the Code and applicable guidance and best practices.

In May 2023, our Annual Shareholders’ Meeting approved our current Remuneration Policy.
