The Board of Directors has set up four committees to supervise specific areas or prepare cases for consideration by the full Board.

The Nomination Committee operates as a preparatory committee for the Board of Directors with respect to the nomination and appointment of candidates to the Executive Board and to the Board of Directors and evaluation of the work and performance of the Executive Board, the Board of Directors and the individual members of the Board of Directors.

The committee also submits proposals to the Board of Directors on policies for succession planning as well as diversity and inclusion.
