BESIX Group follows the Belgian recommendations on corporate governance for unlisted companies (‘Code Buysse II’). BESIX Group has structures and rules in place to ensure effective corporate governance, risk management and control both in each Group company and within the organization as a whole.
The Board of Directors, assisted by advisory committees, plays a leading role in outlining, monitoring and controlling such structures and rules and in securing the day-to-day operational and financial management of the Group and its entities by the Chief Executive Officer and the senior management.
The Board includes three external directors, whereby a balanced configuration ensures authority, expertise and independence, and the positions of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer are separated. Decisions are also taken after ample deliberation and consultation and the functioning of the Board is regularly reviewed, also in the light of the prevailing shareholders’ arrangements.
