2021, a highly mobilised Board

The effects of governmental supports and the process of emerging from the health crisis were central to the Board of Directors’ work in 2021, which was also deeply affected by an accelerated need to support customers through its societal project in their energy transition.

Relying on its financial strength and the resilience of its financial performance, the Board’s actions were guided by a desire to support the Group’s customers and continue to contribute to their projects, to increase profitability in the service of shareholders, and so to secure the economy. At the same time, the Board endeavoured to draw lessons from this crisis and the accelerations it is causing, particularly in digital uses and in the energy transition. Accordingly, it continued to execute the societal and environmental component of the Medium-Term Strategic Plan by formalising ten commitments around three themes: climate and the transition to a low-carbon economy, strengthening social cohesion and inclusion, and the transition of the food industry. In an environment marked by uncertainty, the ongoing discussions between the Board and Executive Management reflected the same desire on both sides for a new model of prosperity that respects the environment and is adapted to new needs.
