Ethical practices and high standards of corporate governance are central to how we do business.

Our governance systems provide mechanisms for the evaluation and effective management of our operations, personnel, risks, and relationships. We invest in developing our leadership, policies, systems and engagement practices to meet stakeholders’ expectations of being a trusted operator. We believe in clear, comprehensive disclosure and open communication with all of our stakeholders.

As part of our continuing efforts to enhance our corporate governance, the Board has adopted a set of Corporate Governance Guidelines.

Board of Directors

The Board provides senior management with independent, objective advice while promoting a culture of integrity. Together, the Board works with senior management to set long-term goals, develop strategy, and monitor Eldorado’s progress toward achieving its goals. The Board also regularly evaluates our principal business risks and monitors the effectiveness of our risk management process. The Board is composed of the Audit; Compensation; Corporate Governance and Nominating; and Sustainability Committees. For more information on our Board Committees, click here.

Governance Policies

Diversity Policy

We strive to create a diverse workforce made up of individuals with varied skills, backgrounds and experiences. We recognize that diversity facilitates a broader exchange of perspectives and leads to greater organizational strength. Gender diversity in particular is a pressing matter in our industry and more broadly in corporate Canada where women are often under represented in leadership positions. To demonstrate our commitment to building a diverse and inclusive culture for all employees, the Board has adopted a Diversity Policy.

Majority Voting Policy

To show that each director has the confidence and support of our shareholders, we have a majority voting policy in place. This gives our shareholders the opportunity to vote for each director on an annual basis and ensures each director is voted in under a majority.

Independent Chair

Our corporate governance policies explicitly require the Chair of our Board to be independent, as well as all members of our board committees. An independent director does not have a direct or indirect material relationship with Eldorado that could interfere with their ability to offer objective judgement.

All of our Directors are independent as defined by corporate governance standards developed by the Canadian Securities Administrators and the New York Stock Exchange.

Code of Business Conduct and Ethics

The Code of Business Conduct and Ethics summarizes the legal, ethical and regulatory standards that we follow. Compliance with the Code and high standards of business conduct is mandatory for every Company Representative.

As part of the code, we have a whistleblower policy so that any director, officer or employee can confidentially report any concerns about our financial statements, accounting practices, internal controls, or any suspected or known illegal behavior that violates laws, government regulations or our code.

Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Policy

It also encourages all staff to be alert to any potential violations of the applicable laws by any of Eldorado’s personnel or independent representatives, distributors, consultants, or agents.
