Constructive dialog between the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee

A regular and constructive dialog between Nicolas Boël, Chairman of Solvay’s Board of Directors, and Jean-Pierre Clamadieu, Chairman of the Executive Committee and CEO, plays a key role in achieving harmony and coordination at the highest level. At the basis of quality decisions, this partnership enhances the sharing of information and embodies the importance of collaboration at the highest level.

The following measures have been introduced to achieve this:

  • The two Chairmen meet as often as necessary on matters of common ­interest, in addition to a monthly meeting to review financial reporting.
  • The Chief Executive Officer is a member of the Board of Directors and is responsible for presenting the Executive Committee’s proposals to the Board.
  • The Chairman of the Board has access to all information necessary for him to exercise his function.
