Organizational structure of corporate governance
For an extended period Primax's Board of Directors has adhered to high standards, often surpassing legal requirements, in its corporate governance principles. This serves as the foundation for a robust system, ensuring the effective operation of the Board and safeguarding shareholder interests. It's also a pivotal cornerstone of the company's sustainable operations. To bolster the structure and functioning of the Board, various committees have been established underneath it, including the Remuneration Committee, Audit Committee, Nomination Committee, and, as of November 2021, the Risk Management Committee. This formation aims to elevate the governance level of risk management and enhance the Board's functions.
