Neoen’s governance framework complies with the relevant AFEP-MEDEF recommendations. Neoen’s Board of Directors is refreshed by rotation, and so only a portion of the Board of Directors’ members stand for re-election each year. The Ordinary General Meeting has set the length of directors’ term in office at 4 years.
