Corporate Governance

Annual Report 2012

Members of the Board are obliged to attend scheduled meetings of the Board and the various Committees they sit on and to make available the time required to satisfactorily discharge their duties. To that end, before their election they are obliged to inform the Board of Directors about other important professional commitments and whether they sit on the Boards of Directors of other companies and to inform the Board in advance of any change in their above professional commitments. The Board of Directors has decided that its executive members who offer their services to the Company on the basis of an employment relationship or a contract for the provision of services may not sit as members of the Board of Directors of more than two other listed companies.
