Our approach to governance
Energy Queensland Limited is a Government Owned Corporation (GOC), established under the Government Owned Corporations Act 1993 (GOC Act). The Corporations Act 2001 applies to Energy Queensland Limited except so far as the GOC Act otherwise provides.
As a GOC, we are accountable to our ultimate owners and customers, the people of Queensland.
Our main governance objective is to achieve our business outcomes aligned with our ethical, social and environmental responsibilities. It is crucial to maintain solid governance foundations through a robust corporate governance framework. This framework is advocated by the Board and senior management, who encourage our people to carry out their duties in an ethical and responsible manner, protecting the community interest and our company's integrity.
