To achieve our solid governance foundation requires a robust corporate governance framework of our policies and practices that have been adopted by the Board and 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.

- Ergon Energy Corporation Limited
- Energex Limited
- Ergon Energy Queensland Pty Ltd

We are governed by a Board of Directors whose primary role is to provide effective governance, oversight and strategic direction of our affairs and our subsidiary companies to ensure the interests of the shareholding Ministers are protected, while having regard for the interests of all stakeholders including customers, employees, suppliers and the community.
Our corporate governance practices are in line with the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) Corporate Governance Council Principles and Recommendations, where applicable, and the Queensland Government’s Corporate Governance Guidelines for Government Owned Corporations. These provide a framework of eight principles that guide our corporate governance arrangements.
