Communication policy

Corporate Communications and Investor Relations are the two Service Centers responsible for activities relating to stakeholder information and communication. The communication strategy is based on GF’s business strategy and supports the positioning of both the Corporation and the divisions. Communication with all GF stakeholders is active, open, and timely. If possible and permissible, employees are notified first.

For the fourth time in a row, the worldwide employee magazine “Globe” was awarded as Switzerland’s best employee magazine by the Swiss Association for Internal Communication (Schweizerischer Verband für interne Kommunikation, SVIK). Both print and online editions were awarded. The significance of digital communication channels grew again in 2017 – a trend that is most likely to continue unabated in the coming years. Correspondingly, the focus of communication activities has shifted, requiring changes in how GF structures its communications. The main project taken on was the relaunch of the GF website.

The shares of Georg Fischer Ltd are listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange. Therefore, GF is subject to the requirements on ad hoc publicity referring to the listing rules and the directive on ad hoc publicity in relationship with the obligation to report any potential share-price-relevant information. GF also maintains a dialog with investors and journalists at respective events and roadshows.

Subscription to the e-mail service is free of charge. All media releases, Annual Reports, and Mid-Year Reports go online at the website at the same time as they are published. Shareholders receive the short version of the Annual Report and the Mid-Year Report automatically, and other interested parties receive them on request.
