Our governance structure
Good governance is based on transparency and collegial decision-making processes. There are 56 people working on the various Boards of Directors of the Group's subsidiaries. The Board of Directors of the parent company, Bracco S.p.A., is composed of 9 members, 4 of whom are women. We at Bracco understand that to ensure transparent management and a correct supervision of ESG performance formal organizational arrangements must be in place such as:
- Supervisory Body as per Italian Legislative Decree 231/01.
Sustainability Committee, a multidisciplinary team comprised of executives that supports the sustainability agenda and monitor the delivery of its targets, and oversees Human Rights Policy, expression of Bracco’s commitment to respect internationally recognized human rights.
Key business functions to champion environmental sustainability, including Research & Development, Design & Development, and Corporate Health & Safety.
Team GIN-CO2, a multifunctional team dedicated to the management of objectives aimed at reducing our carbon footprint and the circular economy.
This commitment to governance, plus a strong code of ethics, unambiguous policies and legislative decrees, and personal data protection, guarantee transparency and good practice – both for our own people and for the stakeholders that interact with our business.About transparency
