The board carries out its responsibilities directly and through its five standing committees, each mandated to provide detailed oversight of the following key areas:
- audit and finance
- human resources and compensation
- nominating, corporate governance and risk
- reserves oversight
- safety, health and environment
Each board committee has a mandate outlining the responsibilities and duties of the committee, which is reviewed annually. Three of the committees - audit and finance, human resources and compensation and nominating, corporate governance and risk - are 100% independent.
