ANZ’s strong governance framework provides a solid structure for effective and responsible decision making within the organisation.

The Board is responsible for the oversight of ANZ and its sound and prudent management, with specific duties as set out in its charter available at anz.com/corporategovernance

There are ve principal Board Committees – the Audit Committee, the Ethics, Environment, Social and Governance (EESG) Committee, the Risk Committee, the Human Resources Committee and the Digital Business and Technology Committee. Each Committee has its own Charter setting out its roles and responsibilities.

At management level, the Group Executive Committee (ExCo) comprises ANZ’s most senior executives. There is a delegations of authority framework that clearly outlines those matters delegated to the CEO and other members of senior management. In addition, there are a number of formally established management committees that deal with particular sets of ongoing issues.

For further detail on ANZ’s governance framework see our 2018 Corporate Governance Statement available at anz.com/corporategovernance.
