Corporate Governance


The German Corporate Governance Code (Deutscher Corporate Governance Kodex ) defines essential statutory regulations for the management and supervision of German listed companies and contains, in the form of recommendations and suggestions, internationally and nationally acknowledged standards for good and responsible corporate governance.

Through the Declaration of Conformity pursuant to § 161 Aktiengesetz (Stock Corporation Act), the Code has a legal basis. Accordingly, the recommendations and suggestions are not mandatory. However, deviations from the recommendations – not the suggestions – must be explained and disclosed with the annual declaration of conformity (Comply or Explain). The recommendations and suggestions of the code become valid with the publication in the official section of the Federal Gazette. Besides giving recommendations and suggestions that reflect the best practice of corporate governance, the Code aims at enhancing the German corporate governance system’s transparency and comprehensibility. This shall strengthen the confidence of international and national investors, clients, employees and the general public in the management, on the one hand, and improve the supervision of German listed companies on the other hand. A responsible and best practice based corporate governance is of great importance to Northern Data AG. The management and the supervisory boards are currently examining the issuance of such a declaration of conformity.

Together. Sustainable. Successful.


As a global value generator of HPC infrastructure solutions, Northern Data is convinced: the future of IT is sustainable.

Ecological and social sustainability are therefore not just goals but determine our decisions and our behavior in a very concrete way. Our new class of data centers serve as a key example: From the very beginning our data centers have been designed with regard to sustainability and have remained part of the success story to this day.

Our density and speed defines the innovation culture at Northern Data. The will to develop and learn sustainably is inherent and encouraged. The same applies to the diversity of our workforce, which we always promote. Any form of discrimination has no place at Northern Data and any indication of this is taken very seriously. We are proud of our international team and know that only different perspectives achieve the highest quality.

The company report will show you which ESG steps have already been taken by Northern Data and which the company has set itself for fulfillment. Nevertheless, it is especially true for us as a young company: We want to and can always become better. We give everything to achieve this. Day after day and together with everyone.
