Our Board of Directors

At Avantor, corporate governance is anchored in the strength and experience of our Board of Directors. We recognize the need for corporations to lead in developing sound business practices that contribute to sustainability, diversity and social responsibility.

Led by our non-executive Chairman Rajiv Gupta, the Board brings a broad, diverse and independent set of perspectives to overseeing our strategy and risk management processes. As such, the Board, as a whole and through our independent Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, oversees sustainability and corporate social responsibility—and we are collectively committed to upholding these principles as we guide Avantor forward. Our Nominations and Governance Committee is comprised 100% of independent directors, each of whom has rich and diverse experience to share with us.

We focus our efforts on conducting business in full compliance with all national and international laws and regulations, focusing on Environment, Health, Safety, Security & Sustainability (EHSS&S); Product Information Compliance; Quality; and Regulatory Affairs.
