Governance

Redesigned following the 2018 arrival of new majority shareholder EQT, Saur Group governance is structured around a supervisory board, an advisory committee and two specialist committees: the audit committee and the appointments and remuneration committee.

Supervisory board and specialty committees

Supervisory board

Chaired by Jürgen Rauen, the supervisory committee has seven members: one representing EQT, five independent members and one employee representative. It meets at least four times per year. The supervisory committee oversees the management of the Company by its chairman. It makes decisions on strategic issues affecting Company life.

Chaired by Jürgen Rauen, the advisory committee has six members including one representing EQT. It meets at least 12 times per year. It takes decisions on the strategic points of the Saur group’s activities. These decisions differ from and complete those taken by the supervisory committee.

Audit committee

The three members of the audit committee meet at least twice per year.

Its core mission is to examine the financial statements to ensure that the financial information they contain is truthful and that the company’s internal compliance systems are effective. It inspects treasury management, supervises Group risk management and examines disputes or arbitrations above a certain threshold.

Appointments and remuneration committee

The two members of the appointments and remuneration committee meet at least twice per year. Its mission is to advise on the appointment, dismissal and remuneration (including bonuses and benefits of any kind) of the Chairman and members of the executive committee, and any other Group employee whose gross fixed annual salary exceeds a certain threshold. It is also consulted regarding the underlying principles of the Group remuneration policy, the implementation of any profit-sharing plan for Group employees, and the mandatory annual pay negotiations.
