Group Supervisory Board

Supervisory Board

The Supervisory Board, composed of 9 members, exerts oversight and control over the Management Board and the general affairs of the Group. The Board supervises subjects including company strategy and financial performance; business risks; structure and administration of internal risk management and control systems; financial reporting procedures and compliance with relevant laws and regulations.. The Supervisory Board's role, responsibilities and related tasks are spelled out in part IV of the Company's Articles of Association and in a separate Supervisory Board Charter.

The composition of the Supervisory Board reflects a strong commitment to the independence and expertise of its members and to the Group's European profile. All members of the Supervisory Board are independent according to the criteria of the Afep-Medef's Code of Corporate Governance and the criteria laid out in the Supervisory Board Charter. The Supervisory Board reviews the independence of its members and its functioning annually in accordance with Afep-Medef best practice.

The Supervisory Board has 2 committees comprised of Supervisory Board members which focus on specific and complex aspects of its supervisory responsibilities:

  • The Governance, Nomination and Remuneration Committee (GN&RC), composed of 5 members.
  • The Audit Committee composed of 4 members.

Each committee performs its duties under a specific Charter which describes its role, responsibilities, organisation and functioning. The Committees make recommendations and advise the Supervisory Board. The Supervisory Board, however, retains responsibility for all decisions and actions taken on the Committees' recommendations.
