At its meeting on November 6, 2017, Veolia’s Board of Directors, taking note of increasing requirements of hard law as well as soft law regarding independence of board members, decided that henceforth, all the independence criteria of the AFEP-MEDEF Code, and in particular the criterion relating to length of service on the board, would be strictly applied.
Consequently, it made new appointments to the positions of Senior Independent Director, Chairman of the Remuneration Committee and Chairman of the Audit Committee. Thus:
- Ms. Maryse Aulagnon is appointed as Senior Independent Director and as Chairman of the Remuneration Committee; and
- Ms. Nathalie Rachou is appointed as Chairman of the Audit Committee.
The composition of the committees remains unchanged, except for the Audit Committee, which has an additional member, Ms. Isabelle Courville.
These appointments will take effect on December 1, 2017.
