Corporate Governance Statement 2019

This statement has been approved by the Australia Post Board and is current at 22 September 2019.

Our approach to Corporate Governance

Australia Post maintains a comprehensive system of corporate governance practices designed to provide appropriate levels of governance, disclosure and accountability.

These practices derive principally from the provisions of the Australian Postal Corporation Act 1989 (APC Act), the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act), and the Commonwealth Government Business Enterprise Governance and Oversight Guidelines (2018) (GBE Guidelines). Our governance framework is also guided by the ASX Corporate Governance Council’s ‘Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations’ (3rd Edition).
