    while (at the same time) being governed

    Hello all users!

    The whole sentence reads as follows:

    The purpose of our company is to have lasting success on the market and make a good name for itself as an honest partner when dealing with customers, while being governed by the following principles:

    I am especially interested in the bolded fragment in italics. In my opinion, the highlighted fragmet could be interpreted as "(and) at the same time, (the purpose of our company) is to be governed by the following principles. Since "while being ..." in itself means "at the same time being ...", it is no use doubling the same phrase. I have encountered senteces containing "while at the same time". Assuming that "while at the same time" equals "while", I think I will decide to leave "at the same time" out.

    What do you think?

    Thank you.
