Board of Directors and Committees

RENEWING OUR AMBITIONS
FOR SUSTAINABILITY AND
LONG-TERM VALUE CREATION

Paolo Merloni, Executive Chairman

The year 2021 was characterized by a series of unprecedented events: the persisting of Covid-19 pandemic, the economic recovery in many markets, the increasing public attention to energy transition and sustainability, the tensions on international trades, the severe inflationary trends on raw materials and the supply chain pressures. For Ariston Group, 2021 was a year to be remembered for many reasons, that further reinforced our commitment to sustainability and long-term value creation.

Governance System

Effective risk management, integrated into the governance system, is a key factor to protecting the Group’s value over time. The Group’s Internal Control System has therefore been developed in compliance with the Dutch Corporate Governance Code (DCGC) and Italian laws applicable to listed companies with legal seat in a foreign country. The corporate organisation thus consists of internal committees within the Board of Directors of Ariston Holding N.V., organised as follows:
