Corporate governance - a focus area

As a long-term and engaged owner, AP4 works to ensure that its portfolio companies will develop, improve and be run responsibly and transparently. Corporate Governance is one of AP4’s sustainability focus areas and an expressed part of the strategy that contributes to a favourable, long-term sustainable return.

Within the corporate governance framework AP4 works with matters such as the Board’s composition, capital structure, structuring of long-term remuneration programmes, diversity of human capital, the portfolio companies’ work with sustainability matters and transparency in reporting. This work takes into account the views of stakeholders in the respective companies in order to best promote the company’s long-term development, and in this work AP4 takes into consideration other owners’ interests as well as what is best for the company in question.
