We believe sound corporate governance practices are fundamental to protecting the long-term interests of our shareholders. Our governance policies and structure provide a strong framework for accountability and effective oversight.
The Board of Directors is responsible for the overall stewardship of Enerplus and its subsidiaries. The Board discharges this responsibility directly and through delegation of specific responsibilities to committees of the Board, the Chairman of the Board and the officers of the Corporation, all as more particularly described in the Board Mandate adopted by the Board of Directors.
As set out in the Board Mandate, the Board of Directors has established five committees to assist with its responsibilities: the Audit & Risk Management Committee; the Compensation & Human Resources Committee; the Corporate Governance & Nominating Committee; the Reserves Committee; and the Safety & Social Responsibility Committee. Each committee has a charter defining its responsibilities.
