Governance

In 1816 when Caisse des Dépôts was founded, the rules of governance were established by law. They uphold two principles: the independence of the Supervisory Board and the autonomy of the Chief Executive Officer. These two principles ensure the stability of the Group and the continuity of its activities.

The Supervisory Board

Since the creation of Caisse des Dépôts, the role of the Supervisory Board has been to oversee the proper management of the Group and the decisions of the Chief Executive Officer.

It is chaired by a Member of Parliament who, at least once a year, reports the work carried out back to Parliament through a report about Caisse des Dépôts’ debates and opinions.

Three founding texts

Structure of the Supervisory Board :

The Pacte Law modified the structure of the Supervisory Board, increasing its number of members from 13 to 16. The role of Members of Parliament has been maintained (three deputies and two senators), while the number of people appointed by the Parliament increased from three to five. Furthermore, two representatives from the staff of Caisse des Dépôts will now be present. Lastly, the State is now represented by the Director General of the Treasury, or her representative, and appoints three people. From now on, the rule of gender equality must be respected.

The Supervisory Board is also supported by a General Secretariat.

Since 2003, the Supervisory Board has had internal rules of procedure that set out its rights, resources and its interaction with the Chief Executive Officer. These rules also set out the role of the specialized committees set up within the Supervisory Board to strengthen its analytical and supervisory capacity:

  • The Audits and Risks Committee
  • The Savings Committee
  • The Investments Committee
  • The Appointments and Compensation Committee
  • The Strategy Committee
