Corporate Governance Code

​​Since 1 January 2004 listed companies in the Netherlands are required to report on their compliance with the Dutch Corporate Governance Code on a ‘comply or explain’ basis. Although Achmea is not a listed company, it has voluntarily adopted and embedded the majority of the Code’s principles in its governance structure. Where applicable, Achmea is almost fully in compliance with the principles and best practices of the Dutch Corporate Governance Code.
 
Corporate governance is primarily determined at group level and has been arranged by setting up and organising a group-wide governance structure and by the formulation of group-wide policy. For further details reference is made to the Achmea Annual Report on this website.
