Further important governance bodies are the Committees set up by the CEO in relation to the specific needs of the Company to address, further and monitor issues/areas of strategic relevance for the Company relating to processes traversal to several organisational structures. Below are some of the main committees set up by RFI and the FS Group Equal Opportunities Committee currently chaired by an RFI representative.

The Ethics Committee was founded in 2006, with an advisory and guidance role, to facilitate the integration of ethical criteria into the decision-making processes of the various company stakeholders, to verify the conformity of actions and behaviour with the defined standards of conduct and to review corporate procedures in view of the Code of Ethics and its constant updating.

The 231 Steering Committee was set up with the task of routing the work, evaluating the proposals of the 231 Work Group and ensuring a regular flow of information to the Managing Director and General Manager, the Supervisory Board and other Supervisory Bodies/Committees.

The RFI Sustainability Committee was established in 2020 to strengthen sustainability governance.

In keeping with the FS Group’s Sustainability Committee, the RFI Committee was set up to ensure that the principles and values of sustainable development and the long-term 2030–2050 objectives are better integrated into the strategic decisions of RFI and its subsidiaries, with a view to creating value for all stakeholders and involving all levels of the company. It is chaired by RFI’s CEO and includes all the heads of Departments/Divisions reporting directly to them.

Depending on the issues dealt with, the Managing Directors of the subsidiaries are also involved in the Committee’s activities. The Committee with the advisory function is tasked with supporting the CEO in their capacity as Chair of the Sustainability Committee, in evaluating and deciding on strategic, operational and governance choices/plans to be implemented for continuous improvement of RFI’s sustainability profile and its contribution to sustainable development.

Founded in 2010, the RFI Audit and Risk Control Committee has propositional and advisory functions vis-à-vis the Board of Directors. It constitutes an important component in developing the Company’s governance system and represents an opportunity and forum for the preliminary analysis of issues relevant to the internal control system.

The Audit Committee’s activities include:

  • Examination and sharing of the annual Audit Plan drafted by the Audit Department for subsequent approval by the Board of Directors;
  • Examination of the Audit Reports produced;
  • Periodic review of the adequacy, effectiveness and actual functioning of the internal control system of RFI and its subsidiaries, conducted at least at the time of the annual and half-yearly reports;
  • At the request of the Chief Executive Officer, an examination of the findings emerging from the Audit Reports;
  • Examination of internal controls in view of the main corporate risks being identified;
  • Examination of the rules for the transparency and substantive and procedural fairness of transactions with correlated parties and those in which a director has an interest, on their own behalf or on behalf of third parties;
  • Expressing opinions on proposals for the appointment and dismissal of the Audit Director formulated by the Chief Executive Officer in agreement with the Chair of the Board of Directors, to whom they report hierarchically.

The Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane Group’s Equal Opportunities Committee is a bilateral and joint body that upholds principles of gender equality and non-discrimination between workers.

The Equal Opportunities Committee is representative of the Group companies and trade unions that are signatories to the National Collective Bargaining Agreement for the Railway Sector and the FS Italiane Group Corporate Contract (16 December 2016), aiming to protect the rights, encourage the presence and promote the participation of female resources in the company and to achieve substantial equality between genders in the workplace.

The Equal Opportunities Committee is composed of one representative from each Trade Union Organisation that is signatory to the Contract and a corresponding number of members designated by the FS Group Companies. In addition to full members, each party appoints its alternate representative who participates with voting rights in the absence of the full member.

It is comprised of:

  • 1 National Equal Opportunities Committee at a Group level;
  • 15 Territorial Equal Opportunities Committees, also of the Group, with the Equal Opportunities Committees of Liguria, Piedmont-Valle d’Aosta, Lombardy, Veneto, Verona-Trentino Alto Adige, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Le Marche-Umbria-Abruzzo, Lazio, Campania-Molise, Puglia-Basilicata, Calabria, Sicily and Sardinia.

  • Clarify the meaning and application of the Safety Culture Code through advisory opinions;
  • Promote improvement actions through the sharing of experience and information, however acquired, with a view to developing a culture of safety and a human-factor approach;
  • Support the competent corporate structures in defining communication and/or training initiatives for management and personnel, concerning the Safety Culture Code and its updating;
  • Propose any necessary amendments/additions to the Safety Culture Code;
  • Periodically inform the Managing Director and General Manager of the activities carried out, with particular reference to the handling of the reports received.

The Safety Culture Committee relies on the operational support of the Central Directorates/Facilities in carrying out its work.

The Safety, Labour and Environment Committee represents the Top Management for the Environmental Management System (EMS) and the Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) of RFI, comprised of the Heads of the Central Departments/Facilities.
