Governance and Oversight
Our lean organisational structure enables decisions to be made quickly and ensures efficient communication channels. The managing board and senior management work closely together to establish Wienerberger’s strategic direction and long-term allocation of capital. Our work is carried out by experienced and qualified local management teams. The supervisory board monitors all key strategy projects. As well as providing oversight and guidance, the supervisory board also acts in an advisory capacity. It is also responsible for the budget, strategy, overall development of the business, as well as risk and human resource management.
In October 2002, Wienerberger was one of the first Austrian companies to commit to the Austrian Code of Corporate Governance. This Code sets out strict policies on corporate governance and oversight, as well as transparency. Wienerberger meets all of the recommendations put forward in this Code.
The annual remuneration report combines the policies for the remuneration of Wienerberger AG’s managing board and its supervisory board. It elaborates on the size and composition of their salaries and provides information on the shares held by the managing and the supervisory boards.
