WSE best practice
In Poland, the principles of corporate governance have been compiled in the Code of Best Practice for WSE Listed Companies. Its objective is to enhance the transparency of listed companies, improve the quality of their communication with investors and strengthen the protection of shareholder rights, also in areas which are not regulated by law. The Code of Best Practice relates to areas in which its application may have a positive effect on the market valuation of companies and, consequently, reduce costs of raising capital.
