A key driver and component of our success is a strong foundation of corporate governance practices and policies that promote the transparency, accountability, and engagement exemplified by the Board. Management and the Board are committed to implementing and maintaining effective practices in corporate governance and regularly monitor regulatory developments and governance best practices to ensure that Enerflex maintains its high governance standards, in compliance with evolving Canadian corporate governance requirements.
The Board is responsible for the supervision of management and the overall stewardship, risk management, strategic direction, and governance of Enerflex. Standing committees of the Board are an integral part of Enerflex's governance structure. Three standing committees, comprised of independent directors, have been established with a view to allocating expertise and resources to particular areas and to enhance the quality of discussion at the Board meetings: the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee ("NCG Committee"), the Human Resources and Compensation Committee ("HRC Committee"), and the Audit Committee. The committees facilitate the Board decision-making by providing recommendations to the Board on matters within their respective responsibilities.
The Board annually appoints a non-executive independent director as its Chair to promote the Board’s independent oversight of Enerflex’s affairs and assist in holding management accountable for the Company’s activities. Among other things, the independent Chair ensures orderly, informed deliberation and decision-making, promotes Board solidarity and trust, acts as counsel for the CEO, promotes effective communication between the CEO and the Board, and guides the Board in carrying out its responsibilities.
