Corporate Governance

At Mercury we have a genuine focus on the long term. This drives the way we do business, our investment decisions, services to customers and our partnerships with stakeholders.

Our Corporate Governance framework sets out how our Board is accountable to shareholders for the Company’s actions and performance – along with the delegation of responsibilities to the Chief Executive and management team. Through this framework we create the objectives and direction for the business, identify and manage our risks and assess and continuously improve our performance.
 
We focus on building trust and confidence through a clear purpose and responsibilities; effective culture built on integrity, honesty and transparency; a well-balanced and experienced Board; management accountability; and effective management of current and future risks.
 
Our approach is based on best practice Corporate Governance and supported by a regular review process. For more information take a look at our Corporate Governance Statement and other Corporate Governance Policies below.
 
Corporate Governance Review Process
 
We regularly review our Corporate Governance against national and international guidelines. Being listed on the New Zealand and Australian stock exchanges we comply with the NZX Corporate Governance Code 2017 and the ASX Governance Principles. We have also reviewed guidelines from the New Zealand Corporate Governance Forum, the International Corporate Governance forum, and the OECD and consider that our practices and procedures substantially reflect these principles.
