Governance – we strive to operate responsibly, ethically and transparently, every day, earning the trust of our team members, communities and customers, mitigating risk and ensuring business resilience. When developing our governance model, which is based on public company best practices, we considered the complexity of Samuel’s business, the materiality of our investments and the size of our portfolio.
Ethics & Compliance – our team members and representatives must complete annual training and affirm their commitment to our Code of Conduct, which sets clear expectations about business conduct and decision-making.
Policies – our policies help guide our team members’ actions in the areas of business ethics, compliance with the law, human rights and financial reporting. We recently updated our Procurement Terms and Conditions and Supplier Code of Conduct to include specific expectations regarding ESG-related matters.
Management – our Management Committee, Board of Directors and overarching management systems ensure sound oversight of Samuel’s daily operations, future direction, enterprise risk management, financial management and long-term strategy. As a result of their hard work and dedication, we have been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for several consecutive years.
Business Resilience – Samuel ensures business resilience and the achievement of our strategic objectives by continually assessing and mitigating potential risks, enabling agile decision-making and monitoring key performance indicators.
