8. Incentive Systems

The company discloses how target agreements and remuneration schemes for executives and employees are also geared towards the achievement of sustainability goals and how they are aligned with long-term value creation. It discloses the extent to which the achievement of these goals forms part of the evaluation of the top managerial level (board/managing directors) conducted by the monitoring body (supervisory board/advisory board).

Currently, there is neither a remuneration system nor a non-monetary incentive system in which sustainability goals are integrated. A sustainability strategy has not yet been implemented in the company's business strategy, therefore no concrete sustainability goals currently form part of the evaluation performed by the company’s senior management. It can be assumed that such goals will be integrated during the development of a sustainability strategy.
