Vattenfall AB is wholly owned by the Swedish state. Through a general meeting resolution on the content of the Articles of Association, the shareholder (the owner) makes decisions on the company’s operations. The Swedish state’s ownership policy and the principles for external reporting in state-owned companies are decided on at the General Meeting. In accordance with the Swedish state’s ownership policy, the company’s financial targets are also decided on by a general meeting.

By law, the AGM of Vattenfall AB is to be held yearly within six months after the end of the financial year and not later than 30 April in accordance with the Swedish state’s ownership policy.
