The Mayr-Melnhof Group's business activities are geared responsibly towards sustainable profitability in all areas of its business. For this purpose, we have always consistently complied with the principles of proper Corporate Governance. This ensures the confidence of our shareholders and other stakeholder groups in the management and the control of the company that is in line with long-term value creation. Compliance as the sum of all actions and measures aimed at compliance with laws, codes of conduct, voluntary commitments and other standards, is a key task for the Management Board in the Mayr-Melnhof Group, which is correlated by a Compliance Program that is subject to continual development.

Part of the program is the annual evaluation of compliance with the Austrian Corporate Governance Code, to which Mayr-Melnhof Karton AG has voluntarily committed itself ever since it became effective. The Code is based on the provisions of Austrian stock corporation, stock exchange and capital market laws, EU recommendations as well as the guidelines contained in the OECD Principles of Corporate Governance. The Code is regularly reviewed in accordance with national and international developments and adjusted accordingly. The applicable version of the Code can be found online on the website of the Austrian Working Group for Corporate Governance at www.corporate-governance.at.

Adherence to Corporate Governance in the business year 2012 was evaluated on the basis of the relevant amendment of the Code of July 2012. Just as has been the case so far, Mayr Melnhof Karton AG continues to comply with all legal provisions without any restrictions. Additional C Rules (Comply or Explain) and R Rules (Recommendations) contained in the Code, which do not require any explanation in case of deviations, have been implemented almost entirely.
