Winning Laurels in Corporate Governance Contd...

Reinforcing Sinopec's commitment to follow the best corporate governance practices, Chen Ge, Secretary to the Board of Directors, Sinopec, said, "Sinopec is committed to the fair treatment of all shareholders and our corporate governance policies are in line with Chinese and international standards. We believe Sinopec has one of the strongest corporate organizations in China and is at the forefront in the adoption and implementation of meaningful governance policies."5

Sinopec's Corporate Management Structure

Sinopec diligently followed all the guidelines for information disclosure laid down by the 'Code of Corporate Governance for Listed Companies' (CCGLC) in China (Refer Exhibit IV). The CCGLC was formulated by China Securities and Regulatory Commission (CSRC). Sinopec had framed its code of corporate governance (CCG) based on the following:

• Company Law of the People's Republic of China (CLPRC);
• State Economic and Trade Commission (SETC) laws;
• Obligatory provisions for the Articles of Association (AoA) of foreign listed companies;
• Directives for the AoA of listed companies;
• Other controlling regulations where Sinopec was listed.

In China, the Board of Directors (BoD) and the Supervisory Committee (SC) were empowered with the monitoring and the implementation of a company's CCG.

Explaining the emphasis on CCG laid down by Sinopec, Chen Tonghai (Tonghai), Chairman, Sinopec, said, "Since established in year 2000, the company has made great efforts in carrying out in-depth reformative measures and improving corporate governance under the leadership of the First Session of the Board of Directors."6
