The OeKB Group has committed itself to the principles of the “Austrian Corporate Governance Codex” as the standard of modern management - even though it is not obliged to do so because it is not a listed company.

Transparency as a special imperative

We, at the OeKB Group, take our responsibility to our stakeholders very seriously because we are a company with special economic significance. We orient our conduct to the rules of the Austrian Working Group for Corporate Governance. Any deviations from the codex primarily arise from the fact that the OeKB Group is an unlisted company and some of the recommendations cannot be implemented.

Transparency is inseparably linked to the principles of contemporary, responsible company management. In keeping with this principle, we publish our annual financial report as an integrated report, which can be viewed at berichte.oekb.at.

Code of Conduct

The success of the OeKB Group is based, to a large extent, on our great reputation and the trust we enjoy among stakeholders and the public at large. The executive board, managers, and staff all conduct themselves in a conscientiously reliable, legal and diligent way and are committed to the Code of Conduct as a clear framework. 

The Code of Conduct not only expresses our own expectations for ourselves, but also our expectations of others. We thus forego any business that goes against the principles of the Code of Conduct and hope that our stakeholders conduct their business dealings according to comparable rules.

General Terms of Purchase

The General Terms of Purchase for the Oesterreichischen Kontrollbank Aktiengesellschaft apply to all orders that are given to suppliers for the supply of goods or work or services by the OeKB AG.

Disclosure Report

We increase transparency for market participants with our Disclosure Report. In it, we disclose information regarding our capital base and any risks we have entered into and use this to supplement our financial report. The basis for our disclosure is EU Regulation No. 575/2013 Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR).
