Board of Directors and Diversity

Diversity policy.

Eclat commits to upholding its Corporate Governance Guidelines (Chinese), prioritizing board member diversity, as highlighted in Chapter 3, “Strengthening the Functions of the Board of Directors.” The board comprises 12 members, including four independent directors, selected based on their professional expertise and adherence to Eclat’s Article of Incorporation and the “Director Election Rules” (Article 22). These independent directors bring a wealth of experience, including former government officials, esteemed academics, and seasoned industry professionals.

Specific management Objectives and Achievements of the Board of Directors and Diversity:

  • Promote gender equality: Appointing a female independent director in 2022 marked a significant step toward promoting gender balance within the Board of Directors. This step reflects Eclat’s commitment to ensuring equal opportunities for everyone at every level.
  • Operational judgment and crisis management: Decision-making is enhanced through generational diversity among board members.
  • Strengthen independent directors: Conduct evaluations to limit the consecutive terms served by independent directors and introduce new members afterward to ensure high standards and promote quality decision-making.
  • Core competencies: Over 80% of the board members possess relevant capabilities, reflecting their expertise in essential areas.

Eclat’s 13th Board of Directors consists of highly qualified members, including four independent directors and three employee directors, who undergo comprehensive training.

Note: On August 6, 2021, the Nomination Committee was established to enhance the selection process of directors, ensuring a continued focus on excellence in board composition.
