The Board has responsibility for the corporate governance of the Company and its subsidiaries (the Group) and has implemented policies, procedures and systems of control with the objective of ensuring an appropriate framework for governance outcomes that meet the expectations of stakeholders.
The Board has adopted a suite of charters and key corporate governance documents which define the policies and procedures followed by the Group. These documents can be found in the Governance section of the Group’s website and are reviewed regularly to address changes in governance practices and the law.
The Group’s Corporate Governance Statement references the ASX Corporate Governance Council Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations (3rd Edition) (the “Principles”).
The Principles are outlined on the following pages, with the corresponding section of this Corporate Governance Statement addressing the Group’s practices.
This statement provides an outline of the main corporate governance policies and practices the Group had in place during FY17 and how the Group’s framework aligns with the Principles (unless otherwise noted).
As the Group’s activities develop in size, nature and scope, the size of the Board and the implementation of additional corporate governance policies and structures will be given further consideration. In view of the size of the Company and the nature of its activities, the Board considers that the current size and representation on the board is a cost effective and practical method of directing and managing the Company.
This statement has been approved by the Board of Directors of the Group and the information contained herein is correct as of 17 August 2018.
