A company should operate a corporate website and publish on it, in a legible form and in a separate section, in addition to information required under the legislation, information about the company’s diversity policy applicable to the company’s governing bodies and key managers; the description should cover the following elements of the diversity policy: gender, education, age, professional experience, and specify the goals of the diversity policy and its implementation in the reporting period; where the company has not drafted and implemented a diversity policy, it should publish the explanation of its decision on its website.
Decisions to select members of the Company’s governing bodies are made by the owner, taking into consideration the Ministry of Energy’s ‘Standards of the owner’s supervision at state-owned companies in which rights attached to shares are exercised by the Minister of Energy’ and ‘Rules and procedure for selecting candidates for members of the supervisory bodies of state-owned companies in which rights attached to the State Treasury’s shares are exercised by the Minister of the Energy’ - Regulation of the Minister of Energy of August 4th 2016.
The Company believes there is no need to define a diversity policy for its key managers. Even though no such policy has been implemented at PGNiG, all the managers that currently hold the positions of directors or deputy directors at the Company have university degree. Women represent 26% of the managers and the shares of individual age groups are as follows:
− up to 30 years old − 4%,
− 31−40 years old − 35%,
− 41−50 years old − 31%,
− 51−60 years old − 24%,
− 61+ years old − 7%.
