In addition, shareholder Thorwald Arvidsson submitted proposals on the company's workplace accident and equality policies, as well as proposals for a shareholder's association, increased oversight of board members' invoicing of their remuneration, the establishment of a quarantine of politically associated director nominees before they can be elected to the board, and proper representation of small and midsize companies on the board.
Arvidsson also proposed that different voting rights for shares should be abolished and that simple shareholder matters should be allowed to be handled in Stockholm instead of having to involve the company's Brussels headquarters.
