Governance and Compliance

We are committed to building and entrenching a sustainable governance and compliance framework

In 2007, the Visy Governance Board was established to oversee the strategic direction of the group with a much greater emphasis on corporate governance. 

The Visy Governance Board's role and responsibilities include:

  • Continuously identifying and measuring risks that might impact upon the achievement of Visy's financial, strategic and operational objectives;
  • Monitoring the performance of, and continuously improving, the effectiveness of risk management systems and internal compliance and controls
  • Ensuring that Visy's business activities adopt best corporate governance practices and comply with all legal requirements.

Visy remains committed to the challenge of building and entrenching a sustainable governance and compliance framework. The Visy Governance Board will continue to oversee, monitor and improve the effectiveness of this framework in all areas including legal and regulatory compliance, health and safety, environment, trade practices and employment obligations.
