Boskalis operates a two-tier board model, which means that management and supervision are segregated. The Board of Management is responsible for the day-to-day management of the business, and for setting out and realizing the company’s long-term strategy along with the associated risks, the (financial) results and entrepreneurial aspects relevant to the business. The Supervisory Board is responsible for supervising management performance and also provides the Board of Management with advice. At Boskalis there is close collaboration between the Supervisory Board and its committees, as well as the Board of Management to ensure that the interests of all our stakeholders are taken into account.
Providing our clients with the most sustainable solutions possible is part of the corporate strategy. The remuneration policy and remuneration elements are directly derived from the Boskalis strategic agenda, incorporating not just financial-economic objectives but also CSR objectives such as safety and talent management. The 2015 Remuneration Report states clearly that these CSR aspects are part of the long-term corporate objectives. The external auditor is involved in determining the remuneration and is responsible for seeing to it that the relevant procedures are followed correctly. Please refer to our corporate website for the Remuneration Report.
The Board of Management is responsible for the company’s CSR policy and is supported in this role by the following task forces and officials. In terms of environmental performance these are the Energy Management Task Force and the Eco-Engineering Task Force. Furthermore, safety is given top priority within our company. The Board of Management is closely involved in this topic, on which it seeks advice and information from the SHE-Q department. With regard to the HR and society-related objectives support is provided by the HR director and the director of IR & Corporate Communications, respectively. The Board of Management seeks advice on chain-related matters from the heads of the business units and relevant staff departments. The CSR Report is reviewed by the Board of Management of Boskalis and its contents are discussed in their entirety with the Supervisory Board.
