The Audit and Compensation Committee

The Audit Committee is a standing committee established by the Board of Directors to work with it on its business. As a permanent body, the Audit Committee’s main mission is to monitor the preparation of accounting and financial information and the efficacy of the Group’s internal control and risk management systems. It is also responsible for overseeing the audit of the annual and consolidated financial statements by the Statutory Auditors and monitoring their independence.

In 2022, The Board expanded the Audit Committee’s scope by adding the duties of Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee is responsible for ensuring that executive compensation and changes thereto are aligned with the interests of shareholders and company’s performance (compensation to attract, incentivise and retain the best executives), and making proposals or recommandations to the Board of Directors.

In 2022, the Audit Committee has three members, all appointed by the Board of Directors:

  • Ms. Marie-Louise LIGER (Independent Director)
  • Ms. Anne LHOTE (Director)
  • Mr. Daniel ANTOINE (Director)
  • Mr. François JACQUEL (Director)

This Committee is chaired by Ms. Marie-Louise LIGER based on her specific expertise in the area of accounting and finance.

 The Strategy and CSR Committee

In 2022, the Board set up a specialised committee in order to examine how the company integrates CSR issues into its operations and strategy.

The Strategy and CSR Committee will be responsible for :

• Advising the Board of Directors on the Company’s major strategic orientations and, in particular, on areas of development, external growth or divestment opportunities, significant agreements of partnerships and transactions involving the Company’s capital;

• Monitoring changes in the competitive environment. The CSR Committee identifies the most important CSR issues for the Company, and in particular those issues that pose risks and those that present opportunities.

In 2022, the Strategy and CSR Committee was composed of three members :

  • M. Thierry CHAPUSOT (Chairman of the Board of Directors)
  • Mrs Céline GRIS (Independant Director)
  • Mrs Sophie MAYEUX (Independant Director).

The Strategy and CSR Committee is chaired by Thierry CHAPUSOT, given his knowledge of the Group, his expertise, particularly in external growth areas, and his desire to lead the Strategy and CSR Committee by establishing social and environmental responsibility as a priority for the Board he chairs, in order to become a major focus of the Group strategy.
