A multi-stakeholder Board of Directors and a CSR Committee

The Board of Directors sets the general policy, decides on investments and tariffs. It has 32 members, representing both the State and the local authorities concerned, the Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Ile de France, as well as qualified bodies including an environmental association (FNE Ile-de-France), port users and employee representatives elected by employees.
An SER Committee was created in 2016. Emanating from the Board of Directors and composed of eight members, its role is to assist the Board of Directors in monitoring CSR issues.

Equal treatment

The distribution of the workforce of the Ports de Paris between men and women is fairly balanced with a growing proportion of women (55%).
