The Board of Directors determines the orientations of the Company’s activities and ensures their implementation, in accordance with its corporate interest, taking into account the social and environmental stakes of its activity. Accordingly, it examines and approves the Group’s major strategic orientations. Subject to the powers attributed to the General Meetings and within the limit of the corporate purpose, the Board deals with any issue concerning the smooth running of the Company and manages corporate business pursuant to its decisions.
The members are chosen for their skills, their integrity, their independence and their determination to take into account the interests of all shareholders.
Following the decisions taken by the Group's 2021 General Meeting, the Board of Directors is now composed of 15 members: 13 members appointed by the General Meeting, including six women and seven foreign nationals, and two Directors representing employees.
Every nomination of a new Director is made in accordance with the principles of the diversity policy defined by the Board. The Board considers that respecting these diversity criteria, such as complementarity of experience, in particular international experience, nationalities, age, gender, cultures and expertise, contributes to the quality of its debates.
The Air Liquide Board of Directors gathers different profiles and offers a wealth of skills (finance, management, digital, science, international development, etc.) in a variety of sectors (chemicals, consumer products, healthcare, research, energy, services, automotive, etc.).
