Pursuant to Article 19 of the Articles of Association, the Board of Directors is vested with the widest powers for the ordinary and extraordinary management of the Company, without limitation and therefore with the power to carry out all acts considered necessary to implement and achieve the corporate purpose, excluding only those strictly reserved by law to the Shareholders’ Meeting. In particular, the Board is exclusively responsible for, among other things, examining and approving strategic, business and financial plans, and the Group’s structure; the Board also oversees operating performance, and pays particular attention to possible conflicts of interest.
The strategic value of sustainability for Gefran is demonstrated by a series of governance choices that our Group has formally implemented, in line with this vision. In particular, in May 2020, the Board of Directors of Gefran Spa established the Sustainability Committee among its board committees and approved its regulations.
Gefran’s Sustainability Committee is responsible for supervising all the Group’s sustainability activities and reporting progress to the Board of Directors.
To carry out these tasks, the Committee makes recourse to a Working Group, which includes representatives of the various company departments. The Working Group is responsible for developing all activities conducive to the definition and implementation of Gefran’s sustainability strategy and for drafting the first sustainability policy document. The Working Group carries out these activities also through close collaboration with representatives of all Gefran Group subsidiaries.
