Corporate Governance

A well-governed business

IHS Towers is committed to the highest standards of corporate governance across all IHS entities. The Board has an appropriate balance of executive, non-executive and independent directors, and a blend of knowledge, skills, objectivity and experience that serves the Group and its stakeholders appropriately. 

Corporate governance at IHS Towers is integral to the framework of the company's internal procedures and practices. Controls have been rigorously established to protect the reputation of our customers and investors along with our own – a reputation that is built on performance, transparency, efficiency and quality of service delivery.

Further proof of our commitment to self-regulation is the external governance controls that the Board and management adhere to, ensuring appropriate checks and balances are in place, and to reinforce transparency at all levels.

We have adopted a Group Tax Strategy in accordance with our Code of Conduct, which can be viewed here.

Accountability

We stand by our actions, remembering that we are responsible to our customers, partners, investors, colleagues, shareholders and the communities we operate in.

Achievement

We come together as an organization to achieve defined goals, and this remains the focal point for the use of time and resources.
 

Respect

Our activities impact on our clients, our investors, on society at large, the environment and the company itself. We are committed to ensuring this impact is as positive as possible.

Ethical conduct

Everything we do and say must be fair and right.

 

Board committees

The Board of Directors utilizes a number of Committees to facilitate the efficient and effective execution of its duties.

The Audit Committee meets at least four times a year, to coincide with key dates within the financial reporting and audit cycle. Additional meetings can be held at the discretion of the Chairman of the Audit Committee. The Committee is primarily responsible for ensuring IHS Towers’ financial reporting, risk management and internal controls meet the needs of the business and, where applicable, are in full compliance with all regulations in which each IHS entity operates. 

The Remuneration Committee meets twice a year. Additional meetings can be held, at the request of the Chairman or any of its members. The Committee focuses on identifying, reviewing and approving corporate goals and objectives relevant to executive officer remuneration, and ensure they are robust and in-line with company and market benchmarks.

The Nominations Committee meets a minimum of twice a year. Additional meetings can be convened, as the Chairman of the Committee determines. The Committee is responsible for the selection and appointment of all directors, reviewing the composition, function and duties of our Board, including through the arrangement of an annual Board self-evaluation.

Risk management

The Board of Directors has overall responsibility for establishing and overseeing the Group’s risk management framework. The Executive Committee is responsible for the implementation of the risk management framework, with oversight provided by the Audit Committee. 

Internal audit

The Internal Audit function provides assurance over the design and operational effectiveness of the internal control environment, intended to ensure that the company can achieve its strategic objectives. The Audit Committee approves the annual work program of Internal Audit and receives regular reports on its findings and conclusions.
