Nuestra gobernanza

En Danone, la gobernanza es parte integrante de nuestra estructura corporativa y operacional: un compromiso de largo recorrido enraizado
en la responsabilidad compartida.

UNA GOBERNANZA QUE APORTA VALOR AÑADIDO

En Danone, la gobernanza es parte integrante de nuestra estructura corporativa y operacional: un compromiso de largo recorrido enraizado en la responsabilidad compartida. Su papel es la organización de las relaciones entre los distintos órganos corporativos. La gobernanza abarca todos los procedimientos, normas y estructuras que sirven para garantizar la transparencia de las operaciones de la empresa, así como el equilibrio de poderes entre accionistas, consejeros, ejecutivos, empleados, proveedores y clientes.

La gobernanza es vital para una gestión saludable, y su papel es estratégico, garantizando no solo la conformidad reglamentaria sino también la vitalidad de nuestro modelo empresarial, su visión y sus ambiciones. Para Danone, la gobernanza está basada en la implementación de un proceso eficiente de toma de decisiones, una gestión que implica a todos los actores que participan en la actividad de la empresa, y un sistema de evaluación.

Se estructura en torno a tres aspectos básicos:

  • Una gobernanza corporativa eficiente ejercida por un Consejo de Administración experto, independiente y diverso;
  • Una gobernanza en salud y nutrición que refleja las prioridades y ambiciones de Danone en estos ámbitos;
  • Una gobernanza social que sitúa el compromiso social de Danone en el centro de su gestión y de su estrategia.
