Corporate Governance

Responsible steering & company monitoring

We want to create sustainable value and position our company in such a way that it best meets the needs of all stakeholders. In doing so, we rely on responsible corporate leadership that is subject to fixed criteria. It forms the basis of our decision-making and control processes.

Various rules and laws form the basis for shaping management and control at K+S. These include relevant legal provisions such as stock corporation law, co-determination law and capital market law; the Articles of Association and bylaws of our Supervisory Board and Board of Executive Directors as well as, with a few exceptions, the German Corporate Governance Code.

Beyond our statutory obligations, we have defined fundamental values and principles that provide the framework for our conduct and decions and provide guidance for our business activities.
