Responsibility for shareholders
Responsibility to our investors means operating a system of active value management and gearing our actions toward continuous, lasting company value. Our reporting system ensures value-driven, transparent and prompt reporting. In the financial year 2008, the Executive Board and Supervisory Board once again continuously monitored and further developed the MLP corporate governance throughout the Group. Alongside obvious factors such as fulfilling all relevant specifications and requirements, for MLP the principles of good company management also include a qualified, sustainable system of risk management and a Group-wide compliance organisation (please refer to the section entitled "Company objectives and corporate management", the Risk and disclosure report," as well as the "Investor relations" and "Corporate governance report" for details).
