The Board of Wesfarmers is a strong advocate of good corporate governance. The Board is committed to providing a satisfactory return to its shareholders and fulfilling its corporate governance obligations and responsibilities in the best interests of the company and its stakeholders.
Wesfarmers complies with the second edition of the ASX Corporate Governance Council’s Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations released in August 2007 with 2010 amendments (ASX Principles). Wesfarmers’ corporate governance practices for the year ended 30 June 2014 are outlined in the Corporate Governance Statement, which forms part of the 2014 Annual Report.
Noting that the third edition of the ASX Principles was released on 27 March 2014, and takes effect for a listed entity’s first full financial year commencing on or after 1 July 2014, Wesfarmers will report against the third edition in its 2015 annual report. In preparation for that, Wesfarmers has commenced a process of reviewing and updating its corporate governance documentation and practices against the third edition of the ASX Principles.
