Compensation of senior executives
Vattenfall AB applies the Swedish Government Offices' guidelines for remuneration and other terms of employment for senior executives in state-owned companies. These guidelines form part of the Swedish State's ownership policy.
The 2017 AGM approved Vattenfall's deviation from application of the guidelines with respect to executives of subsidiaries, in such way that instead of the definition of senior executive in the Swedish Companies Act, senior executives shall be defined on the basis of whether they have a significant impact on the Group's earnings, through use of the International Position Evaluation (IPE) model. Managers with positions of IPE 68 and higher are to be considered to be senior executives.
Ahead of the AGM's resolution, the Board issued a reasoned statement regarding the deviation from the government's guidelines. This reasoned statement is provided in the 2016 Annual and Sustainability Report, on page 78.
Vattenfall does not pay any variable compensation to senior executives.
Remuneration for the CEO and other senior executives, and compliance with the guidelines set by the 2015 Annual General Meeting for compensation of senior executives are described in more detail in the Annual and Sustainability Report, Note 46 to the consolidated accounts.
