What is Corporate Governance?

Simply, governance is about oversight of organizational processes and practices with independence and accountability.

When applied to business, it is referred to as Corporate Governance. Corporate governance, then, is a set of rules that directs the relationships and practices of everyone in a company and in the community in which it does business. These rules ensure that honest decision making and transparent and accountable practices are maintained by the company and all its personnel.

Good corporate governance is a requisite to a good listed company. Companies who turn to outside sources of capital need to demonstrate sound governance to investors and lenders.

TONE FROM THE TOP:

“Governance is everyone’s business – the Board, top management, middle management and rank and file. For us, Corporate Governance is not just a set of rules to comply with. It must be a way of life, a set of habits, an attitude – indeed a culture – that will ensure success and prosperity for the long term.” – Mr. Manuel V. Pangilinan

Why is Corporate Governance Important?

Regulators require this. As a Filipino company, Tollways follows the corporate governance rules of the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission (PSEC). The Manual on Corporate Governance, which institutionalizes the corporate governance principles committed to by the Company, is a PSEC requirement.
