Corporate Eye

TNT Corporate Governance

Some companies fully embrace good Corporate Governance and show it clearly on the website; and that, of course, is what we’re interested in.

One such company is Amsterdam based TNT.

TNT aims to be a trustworthy, values-based company with a reputation for integrity, transparency and compliance. To enhance that vision TNT has developed and implemented the TNT Integrity Programme and the TNT Business Principles and related policies and procedures. 

TNT doesn’t just state this lofty statement, they implement it in daily practices, integrating these principles in strategic and operational practices. TNT uses an integrity due diligence process in merger and acquisitions, and also require employees to fully understand their Business Principles. 

In its Our Business section, TNT displays a clear and transparent description of its business and strategic intent.

This information is crucial for existing and prospective investors.

Next navigate the Corporate Governance section and see a well designed display of relevant information. Noteworthy is the list of Acquisitions and Divestments. This is rarely seen on Corporate Governance websites.

Finally TNT indicates their commitment to Integrity: it seems they are serious about this – they have a Group Director Integrity executive position. 

TNT stands out as a company that realizes the importance of effective Corporate Governance.
