Corporate Governance

We work continually to improve corporate governance, and once a year we publish a report on our compliance with the recommendations on good corporate governance made by the Danish Committee on Corporate Governance and the Danish Bankers Association. The conclusion of the latest report, published in the beginning of 2017, was that we comply with all the recommendations.

The full remuneration of the members of the Executive Board depends on Danske Bank's performance, while the Board of Directors' remuneration is fixed.

Employees have the opportunity to be whistleblowers. We have an interest in establishing and maintaining an environment that encourages the free flow of information. This also applies to the security of employees who report a suspicion; they are protected against retaliatory measures. Reports and questions that are received through the whistleblower system are treated as strictly confidential, are passed on to Group Compliance, and are reported to the Board of Directors' audit committee.
