Corporate Governance

The Board focuses on the delivery of Carbon Holdings’ long-term objectives – monitoring our operations, strategy and policies closely – as well as our risk management. The Board reviews our management of external risks and any risks arising from our day-to-day operations and planned activities. It also ensures that Carbon Holdings maintains sound management and internal control systems and reviews these on an annual basis.

The Board is responsible for acquisitions and divestments, major capital expenditure projects and oversees budgets and dividend policy. It determines key appointments, reviews shareholders’ views and establishes our financial calendar. It delegates specific responsibilities around budget, strategy and policy to the Executive Committee, the Remuneration and Compensation Committee and the Audit, Risk and Compliance Committee and ensures the work of these committees is integrated into the management of the company.

We work hard to ensure that key principles guide our Board: transparency and open communications; a clear and accountable structure; defined expenditure authorization levels; and comprehensive financial reporting. In accordance with these principles, the Board meets regularly with our major shareholders and has a profound understanding of shareholders’ views.

Board of Directors

At Carbon Holdings we recognize the vital importance of effective governance. Our Board comprises of two executive directors and ten non-executive directors. Working together they combine experience and expertise that is directly relevant to the petrochemicals industry, the environmental controls we need to have in place, and to helping us achieve our commercial objectives.
