Corporate Governance

The Public Corporate Governance Kodex (PCGK) contains and defines the standards of good corporate and participation management for all companies and shareholdings of the Federal Government. It is a guideline from the Federal Government and sets standards for transparent and economic actions by publicly owned companies. For example, it specifies how corporate bodies are to cooperate, seeks to ensure continuous improvement of processes of the company and its institutions, and stipulates a transparency obligation with regard to the remuneration of the management.

DigitalService GmbH des Bundes is 100% owned by the Federal Government.

As a GmbH (roughly: private limited under German law) owned by the Federal Government, we publish a Public Governance Report every year. Supplementary documents to the annual financial statement are also provided.
