Corporate governance is vitally important for the EPA in effectively discharging its statutory obligations. Corporate governance influences how an organisation’s objectives are set and achieved, how risks are identified and mitigated against, and how performance is enhanced.
The EPA’s Corporate Governance Framework provides a clear and comprehensive summary of the principal aspects of corporate governance and its oversight within the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This document focuses on key areas of governance and clarifies the structures, processes and oversight which are in place to deliver on these obligations. It is envisaged that the Corporate Governance Framework will be a living document and developed further over time as corporate governance, and the needs of the organisation, evolves.
