independent directors

An independent, representative board

The composition of the Board of Directors ensures that it can make objective, enlightened decisions. The 16 members of the Board include 8 independent directors (equal to 66.7% of the Board, according to the calculation criteria in the AFEP-MEDEF code*), offering a wide range of complementary expertise. One State representative and one director are proposed by the State. The Board of Directors also includes two employee shareholder representatives and two employee representatives, meaning that all stakeholders involved in Safran's daily affairs are represented. There are 7 women (equal to 41.7% of the Board, employee shareholder and employee representatives excluded), and 11 directors with international profiles. The Board features permanent "guests" with a consultative voice: a government commissioner and the Group’s Social and Economic Committee representative. 

*Directors representing employee shareholders and Directors representing employees are not taken into account in these calculations
