  • In March, the Committee took note of the letter of the General Partners regarding the re-appointment of Arjil Commanditée-Arco - represented by Arnaud Lagardère (Chairman and Chief Executive Officer), Pierre Leroy (Deputy Chairman and Chief Operating Officer) and Thierry Funck-Brentano (Chief Operating Officer) - as Managing Partner.

  • In September, the Corporate Social Responsibility Director gave a progress report on the Group's 2015‑2020 CSR roadmap. The Committee took note of and subsequently discussed the four strategic priorities underpinning the roadmap as well as the draft materiality matrix, which will primarily enable Lagardère to identify which of these priorities will have the greatest impact on the Group's operations. The Committee also approved its schedule and work plan for 2017.
