“Governance” encompasses how the Board is structured and how it operates, the Board’s approach to executive compensation and shareholder engagement as well as the Board’s oversight of the company’s risk management processes.

Our corporate governance practices are reflected in our "Corporate Governance Guidelines", which provide for director qualification standards, director responsibilities, form and amount of director compensation, director orientation and continuing education, management succession planning and performance evaluation of the Board.
