Remuneration

Remuneration at Fortum is directed by the Group’s remuneration principles and Fortum’s general compensation and benefits practices as well as guidance set out in the Government Resolution on State-Ownership Policy

Remuneration Governance

The Shareholders’ Nomination Board, the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (AGM), the Board of Directors and the Nomination and Remuneration Committee are all involved in the preparations and decision-making regarding  remuneration at Fortum.

Remuneration Principles

At Fortum, we strive for a performance-focused culture where our people understand:

  • the company, its strategy and performance targets,
  • how they as individuals can impact the results,
  • the link between business performance and remuneration, and
  • the importance of delivering sustainable business results.

This philosophy underpins our remuneration principles which are designed to encourage and recognise high performance and behaviour in line with Fortum’s values.

Fortum follows a total compensation approach where all remuneration elements are taken into account when setting and
reviewing salaries; base salaries, short- and long-term incentive opportunities as well as different benefits.
