Sampension has had "improvement dialogs" with car manufacturer BMW, oil firm BP, Coloplast and brewery AB Inbev, during which the commercial pension firm has encouraged the firms to strengthen their tax reporting so that regional, instead of global, tax figures are listed, according to Sampension's press statement.
