Corporate governance is a key driver of company performance. The standard of corporate governance adopted by the company is largely determined by its Company’s directors and officers.
Information in relation to the Company’s Corporate Governance is outlined in three key documents. These include the Corporate Governance Plan, Corporate Government Statement and the Company’s Constitution.
The Corporate Governance Plan outlines several charters and policies relevant to the company’s day to day operations. A copy of the Plan can be found here.
The Corporate Governance Statement discloses the extent to which the Company follows the ASX’s Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations – 4th Edition (Recommendations)
The Recommendations are not mandatory. If the company has chosen not to follow a Recommendation, this is identified and reasons for not following are provided. Where alternative governance practices have been adopted in lieu of the recommendation these alternate practices are disclosed. A copy of the Statement can be found here.
The Company Constitution is a legal document that defines how the company operates. It also sets out the rights and duties of people in the company, such as members, directors and the company secretary. A copy of the Constitution can be found here.
