SUSTAIN: Sustaining Strong Governance
Management Approach - Diversey's corporate governance approach emphasizes transparency, accountability, and ethical practices. With a separate Chair and CEO, the Board ensures independent oversight, while the CEO handles day-to-day leadership. The company adheres to robust governance policies, including Corporate Governance Guidelines, and maintains well-defined charters for its Board committees. Active shareholder engagement allows Diversey to address priorities and concerns effectively. Risk oversight is a priority, and ethical standards are outlined in the Code of Conduct. Leadership succession and human capital management are carefully managed by the People Resources Committee. Diversey continuously evaluates its governance framework to meet changing regulations and stakeholder expectations.
