Committees

To enable the board to properly discharge its responsibilities and duties, certain responsibilities of the board have been delegated to board committees. The creation of committees does not reduce the directors’ overall responsibility and therefore all committees must report and make recommendations to the board. All our board committees are chaired by an independent non-executive director, except for the Technical Committee. All board committees report and make recommendations to the board regarding any issues that may arise. Furthermore, each board committee acts in accordance with its respective charter.

For detailed information of the primary functions, experiences, expertise, key activities and actions of the various committees of the board, please see our Integrated annual report 2017.
