To effectively perform its management supervisory function and make independent decisions, the Board of Directors is composed primarily of independent directors.

Currently, the Board of Directors is comprised of eight directors: two executive directors and six independent directors. Within the Board there are five standing committees: the Governance, Evaluation and compensation, Management, Sustainability, and Audit Committees, as well as non-standing committees such as the Independent Directors Nomination Committee and the CEO Nomination Committee.

The Board capitalizes on each director's expertise and is structured in such a way that it facilitates more effective and thoughtful discussion and decision-making by establishing committee roles within the Board.
