88 Energy Limited is committed to the principles of ESG as the most effective means of creating long-term enterprise value and addressing the societal priorities enshrined in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

In June 2021, 88 Energy made a commitment to adopt and commence reporting on the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) disclosures of the World Economic Forum (WEF). The four ESG pillars provide a holistic view of a Company’s overall impact on the environment, society, and its operational integrity. 

We make ESG disclosures focused on people, planet, prosperity, and governance.

Board Charter

The Board Charter summarises the role, responsibilities, policies and processes of the Board of 88 Energy Limited and comments on the Board’s approach to corporate governance.

It is supplemented by the Board Code of Conduct.

Board Code of Conduct

The Board has a responsibility to set the ethical tone and standards of the company.

A Code of Conduct, supported by appropriate training and monitoring of compliance with the Code, is effective in guiding the behaviour of Directors, senior executives and employees and demonstrating the commitment of the company to ethical practices.

Audit Committee Charter

The existence of an independent Audit Committee is recognised internationally as a vital feature of good corporate governance.

An Audit Committee is effectual for focusing on issues relevant to the integrity of the company’s financial reporting. Given the size of the Company, the Company does not have a separate Audit Committee and the role is completed by the full Board.

Remuneration and Nomination Committee Charter

A formal and transparent process for the selection and appointment of Directors as well as a clear relationship between performance and remuneration, helps promote investor understanding and confidence.

A Remuneration and Nomination Committee is an efficient mechanism for examination of the selection and appointment procedures of the company and focusing the company on appropriate remuneration policies. The Company does not have formal Remuneration or Nomination Committees. The full Board attends to the matters normally attended to by a Remuneration Committee and a Nomination Committee. Given the composition of the Board and the size of the Company, it is felt that individual committees are not yet warranted, however, it is expected that as the Company’s operations expand that each of these committees will be established. Remuneration levels are set by the Company in accordance with industry standards to attract suitable qualified and experienced Directors and senior executives.

Reserves Committee Charter

The Reserves Committee is a Committee of the Board. Due to current size and stage of development the company doesn’t currently have a reserve committee however the duties which would normally be managed by the reserve committee are managed by the full Board.

The Charter may be subject to review by the Board at any time.

The primary purpose of the Reserves Committee is to support and advise the Board in:

Reviewing the Company’s procedures relating to the disclosure of information with respect to oil and gas activities; and

Meeting with management and the qualified reserves evaluator or auditor to review the reserves data or report of the qualified reserves evaluator or auditor.
