Our Governance and Business Ethics
At DWS, we believe that a strong corporate governance culture entails making our business work better, while abiding by the rules we have established. Successful and sustainable businesses strengthen our economy and standard of living by providing services and creating value.
To succeed long-term, we understand the need to build and maintain successful relationships with a wide range of stakeholders. Key to this are the leadership and capital commitments from White Deer Energy, a private equity organization focused on energy, industrials, and infrastructure investments.
DWS’s CEO, Mark Marmo, is responsible for setting the goals for business sustainability and the strategic ESG-direction of the company. DWS’s president, Brian le Vann, and CFO, Carol Naugle, along with the entire senior leadership team, support this strategy and are committed to maintaining the highest standards of practices, policies, and ethical behaviors to ensure compliance to our policies.
It is important that we provide useful and transparent information to foster trust and understanding among our customers, investors, employees, and community. Our transparency aligns the high expectations of these stakeholders with trust in our actions to mitigate potential business risks.
We have invested heavily in transparent and auditable management systems. We have established a set of core values and behaviors to foster a culture based on integrity and openness. All employees, regardless of location, responsibilities, or organizational level are expected to exhibit these values.
