A responsible governance

Getlink - a responsible governance

A corporate governance in line with tommorrow’s challenges

The governance structure of Getlink is adapted to the specific needs of the business arising from its binational nature and is part of a continuous improvement process in accordance with the Afep/Medef Code, in order to support the overall vision for the development of the Group over the next decade. It is based on a separation of the functions of the Chairman and CEO with a new Chief Executive Officer and a responsible and highly experienced board of Directors which is also international and diversified in its composition enabling it to set long-term strategic orientation and to oversee its implementation as well as the proper functioning of the internal control processes.

From the outset, the Group has developed on strong values that ensure cohesion, its future and its development. The Board of Directors is committed to promoting those values, as as the governance and ethical practices, within the Group.

Getlink SE as a European company, is a member of ASEP, the Alliance for the Promotion of European Companies.
