Description of remuneration


The General Meeting decides on the remuneration of the Board of Directors. Based on a decision by the General Meeting, each member of the Board can be paid a fixed annual or monthly remuneration and a meeting fee for attending meetings of the Board and its committees. An increased fee can be paid to the Chair and Vice Chair of the Board as well as to the Chair of the Audit Committee. Part of and annual remuneration can be paid in cash and part in shares. The remuneration paid of Board work can accumulate pension benefits. The members of the Board of Directors are entitled to travel allowance pursuant to Metsä Board’s travel policy. The members of the Board cannot participate in Metsä Board’s short or long-term incentive systems, unless otherwise expressly decided by the General Meeting. The preparation of proposals to the General Meeting is described in section “Decision-making process concerning remuneration” above.


The Board of Directors appoints and discharges the CEO and decides on the CEO’s remuneration and the other terms and conditions of the CEO’s engagement within the framework of this Remuneration Policy. By decision of the Board of Directors, the CEO is paid a fixed base salary, which is a compensation for the CEO’s responsibilities and is based on the requirements of the position, the CEO’s individual competence and performance as well as prevailing market practice. The Board of Directors decides on the CEO’s participation in the company’s short and long-term incentive systems, the terms and conditions thereof and on the maximum rewards. Short-term incentive system rewards cannot exceed the CEO’s annual base salary whereas long-term incentive system rewards cannot exceed the CEO’s annual base salary multiplied by three. In addition to the statutory employment pension benefits, the CEO may be entitled to a supplementary pension insurance, whether a defined benefit or a defined contribution.
