FAR is committed to managing its environmental, social and governance (ESG) responsibilities and to embedding ESG into FAR’s philosophy, practices and business processes.
FAR’s commitment to ESG is guided by the PEARL principle, People, Environment, Assets, Reputation and Legal, in that order of priority. PEARL is embedded throughout our organisation, from the most detailed Health, Safety and Environment plan on a rig, to our risk management process, to the social investments we make in our host countries.
Australian Securities Exchange Listing Rule 4.10.3 requires companies to disclose the extent to which they have complied with the best practice recommendations of the ASX Corporate Governance Council.
