As provided in the Company’s Board Protocol, the Company’s Independent Directors meet at least once a year for an Executive Session. The Independent Directors may also meet periodically in an executive session with no other Director or management present except for the Chairman of the Board Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance Committee (ESCG) who shall call for and preside the meeting.


Topics for discussion during these executive sessions shall be determined by the Independent Directors, but actions of the Board generally should be taken separately during Board meetings. The Independent Directors met virtually with the non-executive directors, including the Chairman of the Board ESCG, at Taguig City in 2021 for their informal discussion of issues.
