The Company believes that a strong commitment to upholding the principles of good corporate governance (GCG) — transparency, accountability, responsibility, independence and fairness—throughout our business is essential for delivering sustainable value to all our stakeholders and ensuring the Company’s long-term growth in line with our responsible development goals.
ANJ’s corporate governance framework consists of policies, controls, processes and standards that cover all aspects of the business and allow for a clear separation of distinct responsibilities, and informed, accountable decision making. The framework is underpinned by the Company’s Code of Ethics on Business Conduct and our core values of integrity, respect for people and the environment, and continuous improvement.
ANJ’s core value of integrity prohibit any bribery in all business activities and employees conduct. This is clearly stated and emphasized in every ANJ’s value training, that is mandatory for everybody that join ANJ. We also have expanded this training to some of our vendors and communities surrounding our operation area.
The Group’s CFO has the responsibility for monitoring tax policies and practices, including compliance with legal requirements, and for major judgmental decisions involving tax. The Group’s adherence to tax regulations in its practice is subject to supervision and review by the Audit Committee.

In order to achieve this outcome, the Group:
i. Organizes its affairs on sound commercial principles and in accordance with relevant tax legislation;
ii. Maintains strong operational internal controls to ensure that timely and accurate tax returns and associated payments are submitted;
iii. Obtains independent specialist external advice where there are areas of uncertainties;
iv. Monitor tax regulation development and, when necessary, adjust its system of recording to anticipate the changes, so that timely and accurate tax reporting can be done;
