We recognize the importance of corporate governance to the effective management of our company and to the protection of our employees, shareholders and other stakeholders. Our approach to corporate governance is designed with a view to ensure that the business and affairs of our company are effectively managed so as to enhance shareholder value.
Ethical Business Conduct
Our employees and business representatives create the collective identity of our company that drives us forward. As a company, we are committed to providing a fair, respectful, and healthy workplace that promotes a high level of ethical standards
Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy
We have implemented a global Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy. This Policy applies to all our subsidiaries, employees, and its Board of Directors. We are committed to open, honest, transparent, fair, and ethical business behavior in all business dealings with public officials, whether domestic or foreign (“Public Officials”). We are committed to being in full compliance with all applicable anti-bribery and anti-corruption statutes in those jurisdictions in which we operate, including Canada.
Working towards Sustainable and Effective Governance Structures
Amid rapid developments in the environmental, social and governance space and rising stakeholder demand for improved sustainability performance, it was essential for our Board of Directors and Senior leaders to adopt a proactive approach to integrate ESG into our business. This effort included updating our corporate governance, risk management, strategies and reporting. Each of the Board’s two standing committees, Audit and HR & ESG, assist the Board in providing oversight of these areas, with various aspects of Polaris’ ESG performance falling under each committee’s mandate
