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.

INDEPENDENCIA


Un índice de independencia del 77 %: entre 2010 y 2015, el índice de independencia del Consejo de Administración pasó del 43 al 77 %. Danone aplica estrictamente todos los criterios del Código AFEP-MEDEF sobre independencia de los consejeros: «se considera independiente a aquel consejero que no tenga ningún tipo de relación con la empresa, con el grupo al que esta pertenece o con su dirección, que pueda poner en entredicho su libertad de juicio». En la actualidad, el índice de independencia del Consejo de Administración de Danone es mucho mayor de lo recomendado por el Código AFEP-MEDEF (que es del 50 %).

 

 


LOS NUEVO CONSEJEROS INDEPENDIENTES SON:

Jacques-Antoine Granjon, Jean Laurent, Gaëlle Olivier, Benoît Potier, Mouna Sepehri, Jean-Michel Severino, Virginia Stallings, Serpil Timuray y Lionel Zinsou-Derlin.

 

LOS CINCO CONSEJEROS QUE NO SE CONSIDERAN INDEPENDIENTES SON:


Emmanuel Faber, como director general de Danone;

Franck Riboud, como presidente del Consejo de Administración de Danone;

Fréderic Boutebba y Bettina Theissig, como consejeras representantes de los empleados de Danone;
Isabelle Seillier, ejecutiva del grupo bancario J.P. Morgan Chase, uno de los bancos con los que Danone opera normalmente. Son varias las medidas que se han puesto en práctica para garantizar que la empresa puede gestionar los conflictos de interés que pudieran surgir en relación con las responsabilidades de Isabelle Seillier.
