Compensation system

Information about the compensation system for the Supervisory Board

Supervisory Board – efficiency review

Every three years, the Supervisory Board uses a comprehensive (40-page) questionnaire to review the efficiency of its activities, the organization and the conduct of meetings including their preparation, information provided by the Board of Management and other aspects (self-evaluation or efficiency review according to Clause 5.6 of the German Corporate Governance Code). The questionnaire must be completed by every Supervisory Board member, and the result is discussed anonymously in plenary session. Based on the outcome, the Supervisory Board then decides where and how processes must be changed, or the Supervisory Board determines that no changes are required. Following the last review in the summer of 2018, one of the decisions taken was that still more time should be spent on individual topics and/or meetings of the audit committee; new routines for providing information on approved business have also been created.
