Composition of the Supervisory Board
Triodos Bank’s articles of association determine that the Supervisory Board consists of three or more members. At present it has six. At Triodos Bank’s General Meeting in May 2015, Margot Scheltema and Marcos Eguiguren retired from the Supervisory Board. Udo Philipp was appointed as a Supervisory Board member for his supervisory experience and familiarity with the European financial markets, and Germany in particular. Mathieu van den Hoogenband was also reappointed for a period of two years. The composition of the Supervisory Board was carefully considered during this process in the light of the required competences.
The Supervisory Board aims to be diverse, with an adequate balance of nationalities, age, experience, background and gender. In particular, its objective is for no more than 70% of its seats to be held by either gender. From May 2015, there were five male and one female Supervisory Board members. With respect to future appointments and reappointments, the Supervisory Board will strive to meet the gender target set by Dutch law, in line with its diversity policy, while safeguarding the required continuity of the collective tasks and responsibilities of the Supervisory Board.
