It also ensures that the principles and practices of good Corporate Governance are applied in all their dealings in respect of and on behalf of the Company.
The Board Charter provides guidance to Directors in recognising and managing ethical issues, provide mechanism to report unethical conduct and help foster a culture of honesty and accountability.
The Board Charter was revised in 2015 to align it with changes in regulations and best practices. On 26 February 2015, the revised Board Charter was adopted by the Board.
