Dutch Corporate Governance Code
Since the introduction of the Dutch Corporate Governance Code (the “Code”) in 2004, the principles of proper corporate governance and best practice provisions set out in the Code have regularly been discussed at Supervisory Board meetings. The principal points of the Boskalis Corporate Governance policy can be found in the chapter Corporate Governance this annual report.
In the opinion of the Supervisory Board, the provisions of the Code regarding the independence of the members of the Supervisory Board have been complied with. The Supervisory Board considers Mr. van Wiechen not to be independent in the light of the Code.
Outside the presence of the board members, the Supervisory Board discussed the performance of the Board of Management. It also discussed the performance of the Supervisory Board, the chairman of the Supervisory Board, the three committees and the individual members of the Supervisory Board as compared to the profile. This evaluation took place with the aid of a questionnaire as well as through collective and bilateral discussions between the members of the Supervisory Board, the chairman of the Supervisory Board and the chairman of the Board of Management. In its opinion the Supervisory Board functions well, with a few minor points for improvement in 2015.
The Supervisory Board wishes to thank all employees and the Board of Management of Boskalis for their outstanding achievement in 2014. The Board compliments them on the accomplished record results.
