Corporate Governance (SE)
Corporate governance at Spectra Energy starts with an effective board structure supported by clearly articulated policies that drive management systems and processes. We continue to strengthen our governance policies and procedures through internal reviews and by evaluating and implementing external best practices.
Our Board recognizes that excellence in corporate governance is essential to carrying out its responsibilities to our shareholders. The framework for our corporate governance can be found in our Principles for Corporate Governance, our Bylaws, our Code of Business Ethics, and the charters of the Audit Committee, the Compensation Committee, the Corporate Governance Committee and the Finance & Risk Committee. The Principles for Corporate Governance outline the qualifications, responsibilities and compensation of directors; Lead Director responsibilities; Board and committee composition, including methods to ensure Board independence; and avenues for stakeholder interaction with Board members.
