Governance | G4-38

Composition of the highest governance body and its committees

The current Supervisory Board at Symrise AG has a total of twelve members, including seven independent members and three women: Ms. Hufnagel, Ms. Jarke and Prof. Dr. Pfeifer.
The German Act for the Equal Participation of Women and Men in Management Positions in Private Economy and Public Service passed in 2015 will be considered and implemented for the composition of the Supervisory Board at Symrise in the future.
Also, at least seven independent members should always be included in the Supervisory Board. Furthermore, we are seeking to maintain a Supervisory Board composition where at least one-third of the members are international.
