Corporate Governance Philosophy & Principles

Corporate governance refers to a set of laws, regulations and good practices that enable an organisation to perform efficiently and ethically generate long-term wealth and create value for all its stakeholders.

We are committed to the adoption of best governance practices and its adherence in the true spirit, at all times. These practices are self-driven, reflecting the culture of the trusteeship that is deeply ingrained in our value system and reflected in our strategic growth process. Our governance philosophy rests on five basic tenets, viz.,

  • Accountability to the company & stakeholders
  • Equitable treatment to all shareholders
  • Strategic guidance and effective monitoring
  • Protection of minority interests and rights
  • Transparency and timely disclosure
  • Resolution of stakeholder concerns

In line with the above philosophy, Birla Cellulose continuously strives for excellence through adoption of best governance and disclosure practices. Our sustainable business programme is supported by a solid governance structure that engages senior management as well as those on the ground. This ensures that all colleagues are driving change in a uniform manner.
