To allow the committee to be a real link between Sanofi and the individual shareholders it represents, the Investor Relations team regularly informs it about the Company’s business and invites its members to participate in different communication activities. As a result, the committee members learn more about how a leading pharmaceutical company operates and are able to assess the challenges of an efficient shareholder communication.
