Governance

Developing an open governance

Dual governance

Hoffmann Green has opted for dual governance with a Management Board and a Supervisory Board in order to separate management functions and control. This organization of governance favours the steering of the company and the reconciliation of the short, medium and long term.

Stakeholder Involvement

Given the innovative nature of the company's products and their contribution to society, the company's stakeholders are incredibly involved in the development model.

Local investors

From the outset, Hoffmann Green has been supported by a pool of local partners who financed the first plant and accompanied the industrial development. These first partner investors, the vast majority of which were based in the Vendée region of France, brought their entrepreneurial expertise and industrial know-how. Some of them now sit on the Supervisory Board.

Commercial partners

For its commercial development, Hoffmann Green has signed partnership contracts with its customers to experiment together with the use and deployment of these new cements. One person at Hoffmann Green is dedicated to the relationship with partners to act as a link between the R&D department and the field teams.

Local companies

The construction of the factories is carried out in great majority by companies of the territory. Local partners who provide all the expertise required to build these new types of plants. Thus, the investment of each plant (22 million euros for the second plant under construction) comes back to the local area.
