Corporate Governance Framework

With a sound governance framework in place, Palm Hills Developments' business can harness growth opportunities with greater confidence.

Each element is an essential component of Palm Hills Developments' governance framework, but none is sufficient independently. The Company relies on the interdependence of those governance elements.

The Company ensures fair dealings with employees, commercial partners, government authorities and the general public.

All Employees are required to demonstrate social and environmental responsibility, professionalism, and follow acceptable business practices in performing their duties. While each employee is entitled to a fair, courteous and respectful treatment by the relevant supervisors, subordinates and peers, the Company does not tolerate discrimination or harassment based on race, religion, creed, national origin, sex, disability, age or any other relevant basis. No employee may perform or receive, directly or indirectly, any payments, nor offer/accept improper financial advantage to/from any third party whether a private individual, public officer or a government-controlled entity employee for the purpose of obtaining business advantages or any other services.
