Corporate governance policies

Corporate Governance is an integral part of our daily operations.

Corporate Governance is about promoting fairness, transparency and accountability by setting out the rights and responsibilities of the Board, management and shareholders.

Growing evidence links good governance with enhanced shareholder returns. More than just showing a commitment to doing the right thing, good governance is a strong indicator of overall management capability and quality.

The main framework we report against in the Westpac Group is the revised Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations published in 2007 by the Corporate Governance Council.
