Our Board is central to our Corporate Governance Framework and is supported by a number of committees to which certain Board responsibilities are delegated. These committees in turn formally report to the Board following each meeting to ensure that the Board remains fully updated on their activities.
The Board’s principal committees include the Nominations and Remuneration Committee, Audit and Risk Committee, and Governance and Sustainability Committee, with formally delegated duties and responsibilities and written terms of reference. From time to time, the Board may set up additional committees to consider specific issues when the need arises. The Group Company Secretary provides support as the secretary for the principal Board committees.
The Board considers that the corporate governance framework promotes the prudent and sound management of the Company in the long-term interest of the Company and its shareholders and is effective in promoting compliance with the applicable corporate governance principles and standards.
