  • For the board to agree on meeting structure, processes and content, as well as the chairman’s role in the agenda.
  • Greater clarity on the boards’ role and delegation of authority to the executive, the recognition of sustainable business development and integrated reporting, cyber security, code of conduct, ethics, and internal controls and risk reporting.
