Consolidated Corporate Governance Report
OMV, as a publicly listed company with its headquarters in Austria, is dedicated to the principles of sound corporate governance and has always sought to comply with best practice in corporate governance to ensure responsible management and control of the OMV Group, a high level of transparency for every stakeholder and, ultimately, the sustainable and long-term creation of value.
Austrian law, the Articles of Association, the Internal Rules for the corporate bodies and the Austrian Code of Corporate Governance (ACCG) provide the core legal framework for OMV’s corporate governance. OMV adheres to the ACCG issued by the Austrian Working Group for Corporate Governance. The code is publicly accessible at www.corporate-governance.at. OMV’s compliance with the ACCG was last evaluated externally by independent advisors in 2018. The report on the evaluation is available at www.omv.com and confirms that OMV conformed to all of the compulsory “comply or explain” rules (the “C-rules”) and also all of the recommended rules (the “R-rules”). As for C-rules 27 and 28, explanations concerning the variable remuneration plans are provided in the remuneration report as last year. The next external evaluation is scheduled to be carried out for the 2020 financial year.
