Corporate governance

Auckland Airport’s board of directors is responsible for the corporate governance of the company. This is in line with internationally accepted best practice principles and standards and it is appropriate to the company's business, taking into account its listing on the New Zealand (NZX) and the Australian (ASX) stock exchanges.

The board has reviewed the company's corporate governance practices, as a result of two key reports:
  • The "ASX Corporate Governance Council Principles of Good Corporate Governance and Best Practice Recommendations" (ASX Principles)
  • The "Corporate Governance in New Zealand - Principles and Guidelines", released by the Financial Markets Authority

The company has implemented changes to existing corporate governance structures to comply with the above organisations’ requirements. Where the corporate governance principles of these organisations vary, the directors have adopted practices they consider to be the most appropriate.

The ASX Principles set out 8 fundamental principles of good corporate governance, and Auckland Airport’s annual report “corporate governance” section is structured to reflect our compliance with these principles. Our objective is to maximise transparency of the company's corporate governance practices for our shareholders and other stakeholders.

The following corporate governance documents satisfy the requirements of each of the three regulators and also reflect international best practice for Auckland Airport:
