Corporate governance at SBB aims to ensure that rights and obligations are distributed among the company’s bodies in accordance with applicable laws, rules and processes. An effective and transparent corporate governance gives the owners the opportunity to assert their interests vis-à-vis the company’s management, at the same time as the division of responsibility between the management and the Board, but also otherwise within the company, is clear. An effective and transparent corporate governance results in decisions being made effectively, which enables SBB to act quickly when new business opportunities arise.
