The Board of Directors is ultimately responsible for the effective governance of First Quantum and is required to act in the best interests of the Company. We fulfil our responsibility to employees, investors, host communities and the general public by governing our Company with accountability, transparency and integrity.

Demonstrating sound corporate governance is an important priority for the Board and they are supported by the Corporate Secretary in ensuring that governance practices across the Company are up to date and meet relevant requirements. The Company is a Canadian reporting issuer with securities listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange and is also listed on the Lusaka Stock Exchange in Zambia. Accordingly, we are required to ensure that we comply with the governance requirements under those regimes.

Key Roles

Our Chairman & Chief Executive Officer is Philip Pascall. In this joint role he leads the Board and is a chief proponent of governance, assisted by the Corporate Secretary.
