Please refer to the following table to consult the composition of the board, indicating the dates of the first appointment and subsequent re-election of directors, as well as the composition of the board committees.

The board of directors aims to ensure that the external directors represent a broad majority over executive directors (currently 80% - 20%), and that, among these, the number of independent directors represents at least a third of all directors (currently 66.67%).

Likewise, the board of directors shall ensure that the procedures for selection of members guarantee the individual and collective expertise of directors, encourage diversity in terms of gender, age, geographical origin, experience and knowledge, and do not carry any implicit bias that could lead to any form of discrimination on grounds such as disability, race or ethnic origin. The board currently has a balanced presence of both genders (40% - 60%).

The Annual Corporate Governance Report provides more detailed information on the skills and competences of each director, the board skills and diversity matrix, as well as its commissions.
