Sustainable Good Governance at HFC is the pillar of Strength, Stability and Solid Foundation for competitive performance, regulatory measurements, and stakeholder confidence and beyond.
HFC recognizes the significance of disclosing important information necessary for shareholders, regulators, investors and the general public to make decisions. HFC has therefore established a corporate governance policy and practical guidelines to ensure that its information disclosure is accurate, complete, timely, transparent, and delivered through channels which are easily accessible and trustworthy so that shareholders or investors can conveniently obtain the information. This conceptual platform also allows the auditors (external and internal) to have direct or indirect access to the Board or the regulators through the Chairman of the Board Risk Sub-Committee. All internal disclosures relating to the accounts of the Company are adopted with assurance sign off certification by the Chief Executive Officer and General Manager Finance Administration, stating that the Financial statements are true and fair view of accounts, does not contain material untrue statement, omit material fact, comply with Accounting Standards, applicable Laws and Regulations.
HFC’s Code of Conduct sets ethical standards for HFC employees to embrace and advocate. HFC also has company policies and charters which further support these standards. This ethical framework delivers an environment in which we as HFC employees, can excel regardless of race, religion, age, disability or gender. It is impossible to provide specific guidance for every circumstance.
