As Chair of the Remuneration & Appointments Committee of Amplifon, I am pleased to present to you the 2019 Remuneration Statement.
Our Committee has worked during the year to ensure the constant alignment of the remuneration and incentive policies of the Company's Management with the corporate objectives and with the interests of all Shareholders, paying great attention to compliance with the guidelines of the Corporate Governance Code and operating in line with best market practices.
To achieve these objectives, the Remuneration & Appointments Committee, with the constant support of the Group Human Resources Department, worked in 2018 on the timely definition of the elements of innovation and improvement of the Total Reward Policy, in order to make the remuneration choices a strategic lever for the achievement of the Company's objectives.
It has therefore constantly been verified that the Amplifon remuneration infrastructure was aligned with the objectives of the 2018-2020 Strategic Plan, presented at the Capital Market Day on 26 March 2018, and in this consistent perspective it was subjected to the assessment and approval of the Board of Directors.
On behalf of all the colleagues of the Committee, I hope that the 2019 Remuneration Statement can provide concrete and detailed evidence of our constant intention to guarantee increasingly clear and transparent communication of the Company's remuneration policies to you and to all the Stakeholders.
Maurizio Costa - Chair of the Remuneration & Appointments Committee of Amplifon
