Under current laws, this concerns share options and performance shares and the proportion they represent of the executive corporate officers' total remuneration,

    - managing the annual assessment of the operations of the Board and its Committees;
    - carrying out advance assessments of potential risks of conflicts of interest between Supervisory Board members and the Lagardère group.
  • Regarding sustainable development (CSR):

    - reviewing the reporting, assessment and monitoring systems allowing the Group to prepare reliable ESG data;
    - examining the Group's main lines of communication to shareholders and other stakeholders regarding CSR issues;
    - examining and monitoring the Group's rankings attributed by ESG rating agencies.

The members of the Committee interview the Chairman of the Supervisory Board, the executive corporate officers or any other person of their choice when necessary.

The Chairman of the Committee reports to the members of the Board on the work conducted by the Committee.

Main activities in 2017

In 2017, the Committee met five times with an average attendance rate of 84%. All members were present at the meetings in March and September, 80% of members were present at the meetings in April and November, and 60% of members were present at the meeting in January.

  • During its meeting in January, the Committee analysed the composition of the Board and its Committees and the independence of its members, prepared the re-appointment of the members whose terms of office were set to expire, and reviewed the conditions for awarding performance shares to the executive corporate officers.
  • In March, the Committee reviewed and adopted the draft report of the Chairman relating to membership of the Supervisory Board, the application of the principle of balanced representation of women and men on the Board and the conditions under which the Board's work is prepared and organised.
  • During its meeting in April, the Committee launched the self-assessment of the Supervisory Board and its Committees, and in preparation for the General Meeting, examined the comments of the principal proxy advisors and investors with respect to the Supervisory Board.
  • In September, the Corporate Social Responsibility Director gave a progress report for 2017 on the Group's CSR roadmap. The Committee also approved its schedule and work plan for the coming year.
  • Lastly, during its meeting in November, the Committee received a briefing on the Group's ESG ratings. The Group Secretary General also presented the remuneration policy for the Managing Partners and its various components and criteria. The Committee also reviewed the findings of the self-assessment on the membership and operation of the Board and its Committees and commissioned a study on millennials to be carried out by two Committee members in 2018.

These meetings took place in the presence of the Group Secretary General and, when discussions fell within their areas of expertise, the Corporate Social Responsibility Director and her deputy.
