Governance is how we make and implement decisions. At Pembina, strong governance starts at the Board level and is felt throughout our operations.
Pembina’s Board of Directors provides guidance to Pembina’s executive team, sets corporate policy and ensures Pembina maintains regulatory requirements and ethical business practices.
The Board meets a minimum of four times each year.
Additional details on our approach to governance, with a focus on sustainability, can be found in our sustainability section.
Inclusion & Diversity
Pembina’s Board of Directors aspires to have at least 40 percent of the independent directors be individuals who belong to one of the four designated groups in the Employment Equity Act: Indigenous persons, people with disabilities, people who are visible minorities, and women.
Pembina manages corporate governance in several ways, including:
Operating with an independent Chairman of the Board
Independent directors. 10 of the 11 Board members are independent within the meaning of Canadian securities laws
Directors are elected by the shareholders and stand for reappointment each year at the Company's annual general meeting
The Governance, Nominating and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee has a process to nominate directors and assess their performance on an ongoing basis
Every Board member is required to certify compliance with the company's Code of Ethics and corporate policies
The Human Resources, Health and Compensation Committee has a formal succession planning process in place for the CEO and other members of Pembina's executive team
New directors receive a company orientation, which includes a strategic review and risk analysis
At least once per year, the Board participates in a strategy session to review the Company's operational activities and future growth opportunities
