Board of Directors

Role and composition of the Board of Directors

SUEZ’s Board of Directors sets the Group’s objectives and oversees their implementation. It is made of 19 members that each serve 4-year terms, including 2 employee directors and 1 director representing employee shareholders. It comprises 42% of women (41% without taking into account the employee directors and employee shareholders director in accordance with the recommendations of the AFEP-MEDEF cod) and 31.6% of directors of foreign nationality.

Under the criteria of the AFEP-MEDEF code, 8 directors are qualified as independent by the Board, i.e. 50% of its members, without taking into account the directors and the employee shareholders director in accordance with the recommendations of the AFEP-MEDEF code.

Activity of the Board of Directors in 2018

The Board meets as often as the interests of the Group require. In 2018, the Board met seven times (excluding the Directors’ strategy seminar mentioned below), with an attendance rate of 91.5% (90% in 2017).

 

They mainly dealt with subjects such as business reviews, the financial position and results (review of the annual, half- year and quarterly results, and analysis of earnings forecasts), he Group’s financing position (debts, available cash, bond issue), the renewal of the share buyback program, governance (change of the composition of the Board of Directors and Committees and evaluation of the organization and functioning of the Board and Committees), monitoring the integration of GE Water and reviewing the vigilance plan. The Board has also monitored the succession process for the Chairman of the Board of Directors and the Chief Executive Officer whose terms of office are expireding at the end of the Shareholders’ Meeting on May 14, 2019. It thus appointed Jean- Louis Chaussade and Bertrand Camus respectively Chairman and Chief Executive Officer with effect from the end of the said General Meeting.

 

The Board also renewed the Chief Executive Officer’s annual authorization to issue endorsements and guarantees, and approved guarantee projects of amounts greater than the Chief Executive Officer’s authorization threshold. Lastly, it regularly reviewed the work of its various Committees.
