Board committees

The Board has established five main committees including the Nomination committee, Remuneration committee, Audit committee, Disclosure committee and the Responsible business committee. 

Each committee supports the Board in fulfilling its responsibilities and operates under its own terms of reference. The committees enable more detailed reviews to take place, as appropriate.
