About IDC

Corporate Governance

Corporate governance is the set of processes, customs, policies, laws and institutions that influence the way a corporation, or a company, is directed, run or controlled. It includes the relationships the company has with its many stakeholders, and its goals.

The principal stakeholders are the shareholder, the board of directors, executives, employees, customers, creditors, suppliers and the community at large.

Good corporate governance forms the basis of all the IDC's decision-making and monitoring processes and we subscribe to the highest standards of integrity in all our dealings.

The IDC is a registered development public finance institution established in terms of the Industrial Development Corporation Act (Act No 22, 1940 as amended) – the IDC Act.

  • The Board of Directors conducts the IDC's business with integrity and in accordance with generally accepted corporate practices as contained in the King III Report.
  • The IDC is also subject to the Public Finance Management Act (Act No 1 of 1999), which governes state-owned entities.
  • Our annual report is presented to Parliament and is available to the public on request.
