Corporate governance

Our corporate governance structure aims to support long-term financial performance, meet the obligations of our stakeholders, and create value for shareholders and society.

As a company incorporated under the laws of Denmark, and with its shares admitted to trading and official listing on Nasdaq Copenhagen, Zealand is subject to various applicable legislation, standards, and other regulations for publicly traded companies. These include Danish securities law and the recommendations on corporate governance issued by the Danish Committee on Corporate Governance updated on December 2, 2020. 

At Zealand, we regularly review our activities to ensure that we meet our obligations to shareholders, employees, regulatory authorities, and other stakeholders while maximizing long-term value. Zealand also regularly reviews its rules, policies and practices within risk management and internal control to improve guidelines and policies for corporate governance, ensuring that the standards that we set are up to date with accepted practice for a company like Zealand.
