Altus Group is committed to maintaining high standards of governance and ethics throughout our Company. We believe strong stewardship and good governance are essential to operating our business effectively and are important to our shareholders, employees and other stakeholders.
Elected annually by shareholders, our Board of Directors oversees the management of our business with a view to maximize shareholder value. Our corporate governance policies, procedures and practices are designed to ensure that our Board can fulfill its statutory mandate to supervise the management of our business and affairs in accordance with the highest standards of ethical conduct and in the best interests of all of our stakeholders.
We strive to put governance practices in place that not only represent compliance with regulatory requirements, but exceed them. We are committed to effective and sound practices in corporate governance and regularly assess opportunities for improvement.
Some of our governance highlights include:
- We were early adopters of a Board Diversity Policy and today three of our 10 directors are women (representing almost 30% of our total members).
- We believe that we have shareholder-friendly executive compensation plans that align performance with compensation, and align the objectives of our executives with the long-term interests of the company and its shareholders, while ensuring that we remain competitive in the market, and continue to attract, retain and motivate top talent.
The composition of our Board has evolved to better suit our strategic direction, providing the ideal mix of industry knowledge, diversity, international experience and financial expertise, as well as a range of director age and tenure that provides the Board with a diversity of opinion and experience.
