Register Committee

The Register Committee is Forum ETHIBEL’s independent advisory body. The major tasks are:

  • Evaluation of the assessment reports of the companies screened by Vigeo Eiris
    (the members verify whether the assessment took place accurately and correctly and request additional research, if required)
  • Recommendations to the Board of Directors about inclusions in and exclusions from the Investment Register.
  • Raising problems and topics to be investigated within one or more business sectors
  • Providing advice to the Board of Directors with regard to methodologies.

The Register Committee consists of seven members, each specialised in one or more domains of corporate social responsibility (CSR): human capital, the environment, market ethics, good governance, social impact and human rights.

Every member of the Register Committee speaks on his own behalf and does not represent the interests of the organisation he/she works for. They work on the basis of temporary contracts, which are reviewed every three years. Through the years the composition of the Register Committee changes. The current members are:
