Governance and policies

By ensuring compliance with laws and regulations and transparent communication about corporate governance, we aim to build trust with our stakeholders, which is of utmost importance to us at Nyfosa.

Nyfosa’s corporate governance is based on the Swedish Code of Corporate Governance, known as the Code. Through good corporate governance and transparency, we create a stable relationship with our shareholders and other stakeholders. This also contributes to strengthening confidence in our company. In addition to the Code, corporate governance is based on Swedish legislation, the Nasdaq Stockholm Regulations for issuers and other rules and guidelines to which the company is subject.

Policies
Nyfosa is to become a responsible player and a modern property owner. Therefore, the company continuously evaluates how the business can contribute to a sustainable society. As a basis for this work, the board has adopted eight policies that highlight and specify what measures Nyfosa will take in its operations, as well as the goals the organization strives for. Some of these policies are public and can be read by everyone on the company website. Others are only accessible by company employees, board and auditors via the company intranet.

Anonymous whistle-blower function
Our employees have an important role to sound the alarm if they are suspicious of something going on in our business that violates our ethical guidelines according to our Sustainability Policy.

Examples of maladministration may be:

  • Economic irregularities and corruption
  • Serious harassment and discrimination
  • Safety risks in the workplace
  • Environmental offences

Employees are first encouraged to speak with their manager. If they want to stay anonymous, we offer a secure channel for reporting and dialogue through our whistle-blower function.
