The Compensation and Benefits Policy, therefore, shares the objectives of our Employee Value Proposition, i.e. to at- tract, motivate, develop and retain tal- ented professionals who contribute to the success of our organization and are ambassadors for its values. In the case of the Board of Directors, members remu- neration is governed by the Company s bylaws. The Appointments and Remunera- tion Committee supervises Directors remu- neration and makes recommendations to
the Board of Directors. It also reviews and approves the remuneration paid to senior management and the policies regulating said remuneration.
These policies are reviewed annually to ensure they achieve their objectives and our salaries are competitive. Cepsa has a single shareholder, decisions concerning remuneration therefore being taken by the Board of Directors.
