Snam’s remuneration system, overseen by the Compensation Committee , recognises the responsibilities held, results achieved and quality of professional commitment of Snam executives. The system upholds the principles of maximising individual potential and ensuring equal opportunity. These are principles of the Code of Ethics and have always been present in Snam’s organisational culture.


Snam’s remuneration system is viewed as a primary instrument to attract, retain and motivate managers with strong professional skills that can manage Snam successfully. It ensures that their actions align with shareholder interests and promote value creation in the medium-to-long term.


At the Shareholders’ Meetings in 2014-2018 votes cast in support of the first section of the Remuneration Report were among the most favourable of a sample of Italian listed companies. This demonstrates that shareholders agree with the Snam Board’s remuneration approach.
