SCG conducts business with responsibility, transparency, and fairness, adhering to the long practiced business principles defined by the framework of the SCG Code of Conduct and dedication to sustainable and balanced benefits. The Board of Directors behave as role models in compliance with SCG’s Principles of Corporate Governance and Code of Conduct.
SCG is resolved to become a role model in corporate governance, encapsulating it in SCG Vision with the conviction that SCG’s corporate governance will ensure fairness, transparency, and long-term economic value for shareholders whilst creating confidence among all stakeholders and enhancing the Company’s competitiveness to achieve sustainable growth.
The Governance and Nomination Committee is entrusted with overseeing SCG’s corporate governance matters, encompassing the establishment of policy and guidelines as well as monitoring the performances of the Board of Directors and the Management to ensure their compliance with SCG’s corporate governance policy. The Committee also monitors and evaluates the corporate governance practices together with periodically reviewing the guidelines to ensure their alignment with business operations and corporate governance practices at national and international levels. Moreover, corporate governance is specified as one of the main items on the agenda at the Board of Directors’ meeting.
Practices on SCG’s Corporate Governance
SCG firmly upholds and complies with the principles of corporate governance both locally and internationally. Examples include the Principle of Good Corporate Governance for Listed Companies 2012 of the Stock Exchange of Thailand, and the Corporate Governance Report of Thai Listed Companies (CGR) of Thai Institute of Directors (IOD). Added to this are the internationally-recognized benchmarks such as ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard (ASEAN CG Scorecard) and DJSI Sustainability Assessment. The Governance and Nomination Committee takes charge of considering and proposing to the Board of Directors the establishment and implementation of the policy and guidelines for their approval. For issues that have yet been covered or implemented, the Management is to report to the Governance and Nomination Committee for review on an annual basis.
The Board of Directors compiled knowledge and practices in management that have been passed down from generation to generation and proven to align with the corporate governance principles. They were codified into a booklet on SCG’s corporate governance guidelines, which was first published in 2003. Last updated in 2014, the booklet is now also published as an e-book on the Company’s website.
