How We Govern
Commitment to High Standards
We believe the board’s commitment to high standards of ethical conduct and corporate governance is essential to operating our business effectively. Inter Pipeline’s common shares are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Our corporate governance practices and policies comply with the Canadian Securities Administrators’ (CSA) corporate governance guidelines, as well as the CSA’s rules relating to audit committees and the certification of financial information. Inter Pipeline’s approach to corporate governance is developed by the governance committee of the board, with the board having final approval of Inter Pipeline’s governance program.
The board of directors is composed of ten directors, nine of whom are independent. The board’s core responsibilities are to foster Inter Pipeline’s long–term success, to oversee our business and supervise management and to act honestly, in good faith and in the best interests of Inter Pipeline. In carrying out its mandate, the board of directors has established four committees: the Audit Committee, the Human Resources and Governance Committee, the Major Projects Committee and the Environment, Health and Safety (EH&S) Committee. Each of these committees aid the board in overseeing aspects of Inter Pipeline’s activities within their respective areas of expertise.
