Flawless corporate governance implies good decision-making, which, in turn encourages clarity and liability. Van Moer strives to continually earn investor confidence by complying with the law wherever it operates and by providing clear, consistent and transparent communication about its strategy and performance. In today’s business environment, upholding this commitment is critical for our continued success in the global marketplace.
