Organization

Group structure

The KION Group has three segments, representing our product categories and our internal services.

The first segment – Industrial Trucks & Services (ITS) – comprises the Operating Units KION ITS EMEA, KION ITS Asia Pacific, and KION ITS Americas. They are responsible for manufacturing, sales, and the service network for our brand companies Linde Material Handling, STILL, Baoli, Fenwick, and OM.

The second segment focuses on Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) from the KION SCS Operating Unit, which are also available to our customers through a global network. We are together with our Dematic brand also one of the world’s leading providers of warehouse automation (as measured by revenue in 2021).

The third segment is made up of our overarching Corporate Services. This is where we bring together our internal service units, from KION KION Group IT to KION Financial Services.

Corporate Governance

The Executive Board and Supervisory Board of KION GROUP AG are responsible for the company in accordance with the statutory provisions for stock corporations in Germany. This also includes the obligation to act within the principles of an exacting system of corporate governance that follows recognized standards. We believe these principles are essential to the Company’s long-term success. Compliance with them also increases the trust that our investors, employees, business partners, and the public have in the management and supervision of the Company. An extensive corporate governance report is an integral element of KION GROUP AG’s annual reports.

Declaration of Conformity (the comply-or-explain statement)
Every year, the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board of KION GROUP AG submit their declaration of conformity (comply-or-explain statement) relating to the recommendations of the German Corporate Governance Code government commission pursuant to section 161 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). It is available for download here.

Remuneration of the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board

Remuneration system for Executive Board members

The remuneration of the Executive Board of KION GROUP AG is focused on the sustainable and long-term development of the Company.

The total remuneration of the Executive Board comprises a non-performance-related salary, non-performance-related non-cash benefits, pension entitlements, and performance-related (variable) remuneration. The system has specifically been designed so that both positive and negative business as well as the achievement of individual targets developments have a noticeable impact (Pay for Performance).

When determining the Executive Board remuneration, the Supervisory Board places particular emphasis on sustainability by taking social and ecological aspects into account as well as on the Company’s long-term growth and has accordingly highly weighted the variable remuneration components.

The current remuneration system for the members of the Executive Board has been in place since fiscal year 2021. A description of the remuneration system for Executive Board members and further information can be found here:

The remuneration system for the members of the Executive Board was approved by the Annual General Meeting on May 11, 2021 with an approval rate of 69.10 percent of the votes cast.

The remuneration of the Supervisory Board is set out in section 18 of the Articles of Association of KION GROUP AG. The remuneration of the Supervisory Board was last adjusted on June 1, 2017.

Both the structure and the amount of Supervisory Board remuneration take into account the requirements of the office of a member of the Supervisory Board of KION GROUP AG, in particular the time and responsibility involved.

The remuneration of the Supervisory Board is not performance-related. Supervisory Board members each receive fixed remuneration plus attendance fees and reimbursement of expenses.

A description of the remuneration system for members of the Supervisory Board can be found here:

The existing remuneration system of the Supervisory Board was confirmed by the Annual General Meeting on May 11, 2021 with an approval rate of 99.60 percent of the votes cast.

Responsibility

As a company operating all around the world, we have corporate social responsibility toward our customers, employees, financial backers and the general public. This corporate social responsibility requires us to comply with all applicable laws, to respect ethical values and to act in a sustainability-oriented manner everywhere and at all times.

Human Rights and Minimum Standards

Respecting human rights and compliance with essential environmental standards are fundamental principles of our activities – all around the world. We clearly state this in our statement on the KION Group's human rights strategy.

Minimum employment standards apply across the entire KION Group. These standards are based on the universally recognized Human Rights and the fundamental conventions drawn up by the International Labour Organization (ILO). Furthermore, the KION Group is committed to paying its employees remuneration that is appropriate to the industry in the particular country and provides a living wage. In addition, the company is strongly committed to promoting health and safety in the workplace (see SDG 3 under Sustainability).

Monitoring of compliance with the standards set is carried out using various active and passive instruments.

Responsibilty of our Suppliers

We also expect all of our suppliers worldwide to provide safe working conditions for their employees and comply with minimum social and environmental standards. The KION Group Principles of Supplier Conduct set out clear environmental and ethical guidelines, while the KION Group Code of Compliance and our General Purchasing Conditions stipulate specific requirements and rules of conduct.
