3.4.4Supervisory Board Remuneration Policy

Following the implementation of SRD II in the Netherlands, the remuneration policy of the Supervisory Board was adopted at the 2020 AGM. The changes to the remuneration policy did not include an amendment of the fee levels.

SBM Offshore believes the oceans will provide the world with safe, sustainable and affordable energy for generations to come. We share our experience to make it happen. The remuneration policy encourages a culture of long-term value creation and a focus on the long-term sustainability of the Company. The remuneration of the Supervisory Board members is not dependent on the results of the Company, which allows an unmitigated focus on long-term value creation for all stakeholders. The focus on the corporate values Integrity, Care, Entrepreneurship, Ownership contributes to the realization of the Company’s strategic objectives.

The Company’s strategy revolves around the themes Optimize, Transform and Innovate. The Optimize pillar is reflected in the competitiveness of the remuneration policy, which is in line with global peer companies that may compete with SBM Offshore for business opportunities and/or talent. The remuneration should enable retaining and recruiting Supervisory Board members with the right balance of experience and competencies while observing the Supervisory Board Profile and Diversity Policy, to oversee the execution of the strategy and the performance of the Company. The remuneration intends to promote an adequate performance of their role. The strategic pillars Transform and Innovate are reflected in the focus of the Supervisory Board on long-term value creation.

Considering the nature of the role and responsibility of the Supervisory Board, the pay and employment conditions of employees are not taken into account when formulating the remuneration policy.
