Composition of the Board of Directors

In accordance with its diversity policy, the Board of Directors ensures the balance and plurality of expertise on the Board with regard to the challenges facing the Group. It maintains a range of experience and nationalities and respects gender balance, while ensuring the commitment of all directors to the Group’s fundamental values.

Board meetings

The Board meets at least six times a year. Meetings are convened by the Chairman in accordance with a timetable agreed upon by the Board before the end of the prior year. This timetable may be amended during the year in response to unforeseen circumstances or at the request of more than one director. In 2020, the Board met 12 times and held 3 executive sessions. The average attendance rate was 97%.

Internal Rules of Operation

The Board has established and adopted internal rules of operation mainly in order to clarify the scope of (and bases for exercising) the various powers entrusted to the Board, the specialized Board committees, the Chairman and CEO, the Vice-Chairman and the Lead Independent Director. It also sets out the list of obligations under the “Code of Business Ethics” with which directors undertake to comply.
