Our Board of Directors

The Board of Directors determines the company's business policies and oversees their implementation. In this respect, it works with General Management and the specialised committees to align the economic and financial performance objectives with social, societal, and environmental (CSR) issues. The Board of Directors operates according to the corporate governance principles in force in France as presented in the AFEP-MEDEF Corporate Governance Code. A director's term of office is four years, and the renewal of the term of office is staggered to ensure the smooth renewal of the Board of Directors.
