Principles of cooperation

In their daily life the AGW- members depend on the principles of mutuality, transparency, non-discrimination and sustainability.

Principles


Principle of mutuality
The AGW members stand for an active co-operation on the basis of the common safeguarding of interests, mutual acceptance and mutual confidence. This finds its expression in the cooperation in the working groups, in the plenum, and in the knowledge exchange between the enterprises.

Principle of transparency
In consideration of competition between enterprises and business models, the AGW members stand for transparency in their dealings and for the varifiability and documentation of their actions. This reflects the normative guidelines of the legislator and the regulations of the Corporate Governance Code in their operational framework.

Principle of non-discrimination
In their dealings with alternative business models and enterprise strategies, the AGW members agree to co-operate on the basis of openness, plurality, and mutual acknowledgement in the possible areas of conflict in valuations, business analysis, ethical standards and social relevance.

Principle of sustainability
AGW members are long-term oriented in their business models and their business dealings, and characterized by a high percentage of portfolio property ownership. Their business decisions are based on a combination of economic, social and ecological criteria in order to ensure the viability and value optimization of their enterprises. Therefore financial returns and public interest are two sides of the same coin, which make economic efficiency and social reconciliation in the residential districts responsible for the success of the business models of regionally and locally based enterprises.
