IPIECA: GOV-1, GOV-2, GOV-3. In 2020 the Board of Directors adopted corporate governance measures to increase its levels of independence and improve its governance practices and processes. It also updated the bylaws of each of its committees, created the Risk Committee, reviewed the composition of each committee to align them closer to best practices, and appointed two new highly-qualified independent directors – Sylvia Escovar and Somit Varma – who both have extensive industry experience.

Together with the Management Team, the Board systematically supervises our employees’ sustainability management and health and safety training, as well as the relationship between operations and the environment and communities through environmental, social and human capital development performance indicators.

With the same conviction, they seek to lead the Company sustainably in accordance with environmental, social and corporate governance practices that allow GeoPark to achieve its long-term objectives through a clear business plan and awareness of the risks inherent to the industry.

GeoPark shareholders annually elect the members of the Board of Directors at the Annual General Meeting convened according to the Company’s Bylaws and the criteria defined for the nomination and election of directors.
