H+H recognizes the advantages of diversity, values its diverse workforce and believes in the equality of people. We expect all our employees to respect the varied backgrounds, skills and cultures of others and are committed to providing equal opportunities in employment decisions, based on individuals' qualifications, without unlawful discrimination. To help strengthen the diversity of H+H's work force, a H+H diversity policy has been implemented to help promote diversity.
According to the Articles of Association of H+H International A/S the Board of Directors shall consist of 4 – 8 members.
The Board of Directors has set a gender diversity target pursuant to Section 139a of the Danish Companies Act and the related Guidance on target figures, policies and reporting on the gender composition of management issued by the Danish Business Authority in November 2017.
The Board of Directors shall seek to achieve no later than at the annual general meeting in 2023 that each gender is represented:
- by at least one shareholder-elected board member, when the Board of Directors consists of a total of 4 shareholder-elected board members;
- by at least two shareholder-elected board members, when the Board of Directors consists of a total of 5 – 7 shareholder-elected board members; and
- by at least three shareholder-elected board members, when the Board of Directors consists of a total of 8 shareholder-elected board members.
Currently, the gender diversity target is not met, since the Board of Directors is composed of five men and one woman. To meet the target, one more woman should join as board member.
H+H International A/S does not set any gender diversity target for other management levels than the Board of Directors due to less than 50 persons being employed in H+H International A/S, cf. Section 139a (7) of the Danish Companies Act.
