The term ‘corporate governance’ generally refers to the rules and structure put in place in order to govern and manage a limited company. Holmen applies the Swedish Code of Corporate Governance. Information on the Code is available on the Swedish Corporate Governance Board website, corporategovernanceboard.se.
The shareholders’ meeting, board of directors and CEO are the most central functions incorporated in the corporate governance concept. These are supplemented by a number of other corporate bodies, such as auditors and the nomination committee.
