General organisational principles

The Board of Directors is organised to achieve the best performance of its expertise and responsibilities.

The Board’s meetings are frequent enough to allow the Board to perform its tasks. Board members commit to participate actively in the work of the Board and the committees on which they sit. Attendance at meetings of the Board and committees is the first condition of this participation and effective attendance at three quarters of the meetings at least is expected.

The agenda lists the items to be discussed and states if they are listed for information purposes, for discussion, or for a vote.

The minutes report discussions and record the decisions made, specifying reservations issued by some directors, if applicable.
