In 2016, the CEO involved a number of key executives in presentations to the Board about topics regarding operations and functional domains, allowing the Board to get ongoing information on topics not requiring an immediate decision.

As every year, the Board of Directors also visited industrial and research sites. In 2016, the Board visited industrial units, R&I and customer centers of the GBU Composite Materials (ex-Cytec) in the UK.

Furthermore, a training session on sustainable development was organized, so as to further expand the knowledge and awareness of the Board on that topic and its evolution, the implementation of the relevant Group policy, and the realization of the related objectives.
