Downer is committed to the highest level of governance and to building a culture that rewards high ethical standards and personal inegrity.
Our Board provides strategic direction for the responsible growth of our company. It expects the highest standards of corporate behaviour and endorses the ASX Corporate Governance Council’s Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations – the benchmark for good governance in Australia.
Downer’s Corporate Governance Statement for the year ending 30 June 2018 (in which we report against these principles) is included in our 2018 Annual Report.
We are focused on creating a risk-aware culture, as reflected in our Risk Management Framework. It allows us to identify risks and emerging issues effectively. It incorporates evaluation and continuous improvement metrics in line with the principles, framework and processes set out in the international standard ISO 31000:2009 Risk management – Principles and guidelines.
At Downer, multiple Board Committees assist the Board of Directors in managing its responsibilities. All charters for the Board and these Committees are available on our website in the Corporate Governance section.
