Governance at Telstra
We are committed to excellence in corporate governance, transparency and accountability. This is essential for the long term performance and sustainability of our company, and to protect and enhance the interests of our shareholders and other stakeholders.
We regularly review our governance practices in light of both current and emerging corporate governance developments of relevance to our company, to reflect market practice, expectations and regulatory changes as appropriate.
We comply with the fourth edition of the ASX Corporate Governance Council’s Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations (ASX Recommendations), which is reflected in our 2020 Corporate Governance Statement.
Our governance framework plays an integral role in supporting our business and helping us deliver on our strategy. It provides the structure through which our strategy and business objectives are set, our performance is monitored, and the risks we face are managed. It includes a clear framework for decision making and accountability across our business and provides guidance on the standards of behaviour we expect of each other.
Our 2020 Corporate Governance Statement is provided on the Governance documents and information page, together with copies of our Board and Board Committee Charters, some of our key policies and other governance documents and information. Also provided is our ASX Appendix 4G, which is a checklist cross-referencing the ASX Recommendations to the relevant disclosures in our 2020 Corporate Governance Statement and elsewhere.
