After this remodeling, the female presence stands at 33%, exceeding the 30% objective established for the 2020 financial year, and approaching the 40% objective of the presence of women established for 2022, after the recent review carried out of the Good Governance Code.
Additionally, the composition of the Board of Directors demonstrates its commitment to follow the recommendations of the Good Governance Code of listed companies published by the National Securities Market Commission in relation to diversity, both at the level of training and experience, as well as gender (female directors representing the previously mentioned 33% of the total board members), and independence (independent directors representing 33% of the total board members), which translates into a balanced body focused on the purpose common to promote the social interest of the company through the active contribution of value by all its members.
The appointments of the new directors also entail changes in the different committees of the Board since Anabel López also joins as a member of the Audit Committee and member of the Appointments and Remuneration Committee.
It should also be noted that the Board has the figure of an independent coordinating director, as the president of the administrative body has an executive character, with all the functions postulated by the Code of Good Corporate Governance for said figure. Likewise, all of the advisory committees of the Board are composed of a majority and chaired by independent directors.
In statements by José Elías, president of the Board of Directors, “with the incorporation of Rosa González and Anabel López to the Board, we will have greater diversity of knowledge, skills and experiences that will positively influence its effectiveness and the quality of its decisions.”
