The Board has adopted the following corporate governance policies.
Code of Conduct
The Board has adopted a code of conduct which sets out Riversdale’s commitment to maintaining high levels of integrity and ethical standards in its business practices. The code of conduct sets out for all Directors, management and employees the standards of behaviour expected of them, and the steps that should be taken in the event of uncertainty or a suspected breach by a colleague.
Securities Trading Policy
The Board has adopted a policy for dealing in securities which governs trading in the Company’s securities by Directors, officers, senior executives, employees and their associates. The purpose of the policy for dealing in securities is to raise awareness of insider trading rules and of the fact that trading must not proceed without prior notification and clearance in certain circumstances.
Any Director or employee who is in possession of price sensitive information which is not generally available to the market must not deal in the Company’s securities. Subject to any applicable notification and approval requirements, Directors and senior executives may deal in Company securities during certain ‘trading windows', such as following the release of Riversdale’s full and half year results announcements and the annual general meeting.
During any other period, Directors and senior executives must receive a waiver for any proposed dealing in the Company’s securities in accordance with the policy.
The policy provides that if a Director or senior executive wishes to trade in the Company’s securities during the trading windows, they must first comply with the notification requirements in the policy.
The Company has adopted a Shareholder Communications Policy aimed at ensuring Shareholders are well informed of all major developments affecting the Company's state of affairs.
Risk Management Policy
The Company is committed to the proper identification and management of risk.
The Board has adopted a Risk Management Policy, noting that the Board has delegated to the Audit and Risk Committee and Safety, health and Environmental Committee responsibility for identifying and overseeing major risk areas and that systems are in place to manage them, and that these Committees should report to the Board as and when appropriate.
The Company is committed to an inclusive workplace that embraces and promotes diversity. The Board has adopted a diversity policy aimed at continuing to value and respect the unique contributions of people with diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. The Company recognises that team members will assume changing domestic responsibilities throughout their careers. The Company has not yet set diversity targets.
