IN-BOARD CODE OF CONDUCT

All IN-BOARD members are requested to sign the following statement;

As an alumni / alumni of INSEAD, I have a diversified, rich experience as a manager in an international and complex context. I am willing to let the company / institution benefit from my experience  I am aware of the effects that may arise from cultural differences and I know how to handle these.

I, …………………………………………………………….. declare regarding my current and future supervisory roles as follows:

1. Independence and impartiality

I am independent and objective in my opinion with respect to the company / institution that appeals to me and its stakeholders.

I represent the interests of the company / institution and weigh it from the perspective of all stakeholders (such as shareholders, customers, employees and “residents”).

 

I am not affiliated with an organization, association or relationship (political, commercial, or otherwise) in such a way that there is a risk of conflicts of interests.

 

I am not bound by a non-competition clause that is conflicting with my duties and I can act without any hesitation or consultation.

 

I refrain from any appointment for a company / institution, of which I have the impression that accepting that appointment could undermine my independence in other supervisory roles.

2. Commitment and availability

I ensure that I have the right information to perform the function in its entirety.

I have sufficient control over my time and availability to give the necessary time and attention,  to a supervisory role,  even in bad circumstances.

 

I have permission from my employer (if and where applicable).

3. Ethical behavior and integrity

By joining IN-BOARD, I commit to complying with the Code of Conduct. As non-executive director or supervisory board member, I also commit to:

Act in accordance with the letter and spirit of rules and principles of good governance.

To ensure equal and complete transparency with respect to all other board members.

Clearly oppose my opposition, substantiated by argumentation, against the company / institution’s interests and accept the consequences of such opposition.• I am aware that, in a supervisory role, I do not have an “executive” role.

I give organizational ethics and professional objectivity a high priority.

I declare that I am beyond reproach. I declare that completed this statement truthfully and accept that in the event I am no longer beyond reproach, I can no longer be a member of IN-BOARD.
