CR and Reputation Committee

Corporate Responsibility underlies both the CaixaBank’s day-to-day administration and its general strategy. Given its transversal character, it affects every area. It is based on the principles of transparency and good practice that are the main elements in good corporate governance.

In its development and as a corporate commitment, it relies on the support and involvement of Senior Management and all other members of the organization.

In addition, as an example of its importance to CaixaBank, a body with specific functions on the question has been set up: the Corporate Responsibility and Reputation Committee, which is in charge of defining, implementing and overseeing its Corporate Responsibility policies.

The Committee is linked to the Management Committee through its Chairman.

Functions and objectives

The Committee is responsible for:

  • Identifying, monitoring and managing present and future opportunities and risks to reputation.
  • Working with the Management Board to determine policy and the main lines of reputation management.
  • Establishing measures of control and management in questions of Responsibility.
  • Selecting and reviewing the key numerical indicators of Responsibility.
  • Reviewing and approving Corporate Responsibility programs.

Members and meetings

There are two Corporate Responsibility and Reputation Committees:

  • The CaixaBank Committee meets monthly and is made up of managers from different areas of the company: Communication, Corporate Responsibility, Investor Relations, Risks, Business, Legal Advisory, Office of the General Secretary, Regulatory Compliance and Human Resources, among others.
  • The CaixaBank Group Committee meets quarterly and is formed by the Group's main companies.

The decisions and policies adopted by the Committee are implemented with the support of all its members. Despite this, concrete management goals can be delegated to a particular member, depending on his/her specific responsibilities.
