The basis for corporate governance within Kinnevik is Swedish legislation, the NASDAQ Stockholm Rules for Issuers and Issuer Agents and the regulations and recommendations issued by relevant self-regulatory bodies.

From 1 July 2005, Kinnevik applied the Swedish Code of Corporate Governance. Kinnevik applies the Code in accordance with the "comply or explain" principle, meaning that deviations from the Code are permissible, but must be explained.
