Personnel representation in the Metso Board

The Nomination Board notes that a personnel representative will participate as an external expert in Metso Board meetings also in the next Board term within the limitations imposed by the Finnish law. The new Board of Directors will invite the personnel representative as its external expert in its organizing meeting after the Annual General Meeting. The representative does not have voting rights, nor is she or he legally responsible for Board decisions. The representative is elected by Metso's Finnish personnel groups for the same term as that of the Board members.
