Governance system

 Our Governance system, inspired by the principles of transparency, compliance with legislation and in line with international best practices, aims to ensure effective and efficient management of the business to generate value for shareholders and all stakeholders.

In compliance with the Italian laws and regulations and with the self-regulatory recommendations for listed companies, we adopted a traditional type of administration system, which allows a clear separation of roles and responsibilities, to ensure the integrity and suitability of our decision-making processes.
 
In 2020 we launched a complex and profound renewal process, continued in 2021, redesigning our organisational, functional and managerial structure, in line with the development guidelines defined by the Board, with an ever-growing focus on the role of strategic holding of equity investments. Consistent with this process, we have worked to simplify, strengthen and improve our governance through, among other things, the compliance with the new Corporate Governance Code of listed companies, published in January 2020 by Borsa Italiana S.p.A., the establishment of a Sustainability Committee and the review and streamlining of the competences of the pre-existing internal Board Committees.
