Stakeholders’ involvement in remuneration
The Chairman of the Supervisory Board reports extensively on the remuneration of Executive Board members at the Annual General Meeting. The current remuneration system was put to a vote at the Annual General Meeting in 2015 and approved by 92.96 % of shareholders. This remuneration system has been in effect without change since then, so another resolution has not been required. Furthermore, in accordance with German codetermination, employee representatives in the Supervisory Board participate as stakeholders in determining remuneration.
