Transparency, integrity and accountability are the pillars of corporate governance. SSH is committed to these principles in the way we direct and control our business, as well as in the way we conduct our relationships with stakeholders, the Board of Directors, and our own management and employees. We understand that it is not enough to perform well; we must conduct our business in a way that promotes confidence, enabling us to grow and be competitive while remaining accountable.
SSH instils governance principles holistically into our strategic planning, internal controls, quality assurance, performance measurement, internal and external audit functions, and information disclosures. We aim to go beyond formal regulatory requirements and external audits by self-monitoring our adherence to governance principles.
