For optimal planning of activities, CDP publishes on its website:

The search and selection of candidates and verification that they meet the requirements for the position are carried out by CDP with the support of leading executive search companies.

The search and selection process of members of corporate bodies takes into account specific criteria, namely:

(i) prior verification for each candidate of the eligibility requirements provided for in the reference legislation for the specific company (including the requirements of professionalism, gender requirements, absence of grounds for incompatibility and conflicts of interest, compliance with the limits of accumulation of offices, etc.);

Each application is assessed both in relation to the characteristics of the individual candidate and in the broader perspective of the overall composition of the Body, in consideration of the complexity and peculiarity of the portfolio company in question and the business sector in which it operates.

Within the scope of this process, the Appointments Committee:

(i) examines the need for renewal of the corporate bodies of portfolio companies on an annual basis;
