Edenred's headquarters

Dynamic, committed
governance

Our Group’s management bodies, architects of its transformation and leaders of its responsible strategy, embody the diversity and expertise that underpin Edenred’s sustainable and profitable growth. Working closely alongside teams around the world, they played a major role in Edenred’s historic performance in 2021, despite the challenges of the ongoing health crisis.

The Board of Directors, strategic decision-makers

The Board of Directors is representative of the industries and countries in which Edenred operates. Its role is to define the Group’s business strategy and oversee its implementation. The Board is based on the values of independence (with 91% of members independent), gender balance (with 45% of members women) and diversity (in terms of culture and skills). Its rules of procedure are included in Edenred’s bylaws and the Internal Regulations of the Board of Directors, which form its governance charter.

Edenred’s Board of Directors met six times in 2021 (five scheduled meetings and one extraordinary meeting relating to the corporate purpose).
