About the Nomination Committee

The Nomination Committee consists of four independent members serving two-year terms.

The Nomination Committee recommends shareholder-elected candidates for the Yara Board of Directors and Nomination Committee to the Yara Annual General Meeting.

Candidates are selected considering the competence, experience, capacity and diversity of each individual and the group in total. At the Annual Meeting, the Nomination Committee also proposes directors' remuneration at the Annual Meeting, reflecting the responsibility, competence, time and complexity of the work involved. The remuneration is a fixed amount that does not depend on results or involve options.
