Bendigo and Adelaide Bank is committed to high standards of corporate governance. The Board believes that the bank’s ethical corporate dealings in the conduct of its business have been an important element of its success since its inception in 1858.
This commitment applies to the bank’s relationship with its shareholders, customers, employees, suppliers, regulators and the communities in which we operate. It is also reflected in Bendigo and Adelaide Bank’s corporate values.
Following the release of the Australian Stock Exchange Governance Council Principles of Good Corporate Governance and Best Practice Recommendations in March 2003, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank has initiated a complete review of its corporate governance practices. Key areas are discussed in this section.
Included below is a copy of Bendigo and Adelaide Bank’s Corporate Governance Framework, which outlines our significant commitment to good corporate governance. Please also see related sections detailing our various Board Committees.
