Note: The Board is ultimately accountable for ensuring Cairn meets our standards of Corporate Governance. It provides a leadership role in risk management and requires routine updates on CR related risks and performance. CR performance is a standing item on the Board agenda and the Board received a CR corporate and operational update at each Board meeting in 2016. It also routinely examines the status and management of high risk issues facing the Company. The Board received performance update papers for each meeting in 2016. A Board risk awareness workshop was held in December and the risk appetite statements approved. Detailed Board CR presentation sessions were held in May regarding Safety and in September to discuss CR policies and issues. This indicator measures the proportion of Board meetings that covered CR matters and is measured through inspection of CR reports and other CR related submissions.
