Remuneration of the Board of Directors
The General Meeting may decide to use one or more ways of compensating the Board, such as cash payments and shares. The remuneration paid to the Board may consist of several components, such as a fixed base salary and meeting fees. The level of compensation paid to Board members may vary depending on the amount of work so as to take account of the member’s position as a chair or vice chair, or their role in a Board committee.
