How KONGSBERG understands the concept
Corporate governance deals with issues and principles associated with the distribution of roles between the governing bodies in a company, and the responsibility and authority assigned to each body. Good corporate governance is distinguished by responsible interaction between owners, the Board and management, seen in a long-term productive
and sustainable perspective. It calls for effective cooperation, a defined division of responsibilities and roles between the shareholders, the Board and management, respect for the Group’s other stakeholders, and open, reliable communication with the world around us. The Group’s value platform and ethical guidelines are a fundamental premise for
KONGSBERG’s corporate governance.
Treatment of the topic in 2015

other things, the Group’s management documents are reviewed and revised annually.
