Creating long-term shareholder value, building a lasting reputation

Board of directors

Our board consists of a majority of independent directors and we maintain an independent non-executive chairman of the board. We maintain three board committees: Audit Committee, Compensation Committee, and Governance and Nominating Committee.

We designed our board member selection criteria to ensure that the board and the company benefit from a diverse pool of directors. We view and define diversity in a broad sense, to include gender, ethnicity, age, education, experience and leadership qualities. Our board and each committee conduct annual self-assessments to evaluate their effectiveness, including assessing diversity of talents, expertise and occupational and personal backgrounds.

Compensation

Cheniere’s executive compensation program focuses management on long-term value creation and is strongly aligned with the interests of our shareholders. We realigned our peer group and further refined our executive compensation program for 2019 to be market competitive within our new peer group, to focus compensation awards within the designed framework of the program and to further ensure alignment of our compensation program with long-term shareholder value creation.
