Swedish Code of Corporate Governance
In accordance with good stock market practice, Haldex applies the Swedish Code of Corporate Governance. The current code is available on the Swedish Corporate Governance Board’s website, www.bolagsstyrning.se. However, during parts of the financial year 2021 Haldex deviated from the rules on a nomination committee under Section III(2) of the Code as the General Meeting had not appointed a formal nomination committee. Instructions for the composition of the Nomination Committee and its work were adopted in conjunction with the 2021 Annual General Meeting.
Shareholders and General Meeting
The shareholders of Haldex exercise their right to decide on the company’s affairs at the General Meeting. The General Meeting is Haldex’s highest decision-making body.

The General Meeting further decides on adoption of the accounts, on the appropriation of the company's profit or loss and on discharge from liability for the Board of Directors and the CEO. The General Meeting also decides on the appointment and work of the Nomination Committee, and decides on principles for remuneration and terms of employment for the CEO and other senior executives.
