A foundation of integrity.

The governance of Molson Coors embraces both strong family traditions and performance-based management. We set our sights on the highest standards of good corporate governance in order to:

  • Strengthen shareholder value.
  • Fulfill our responsibilities to our employees, customers and suppliers.
  • Satisfy credit, environmental, legal and other regulatory requirements.

Responsibility shared by all

Good corporate governance is the responsibility of our board of directors, senior executive team and employees, who all are bound by our Code of Business Conduct. This Code incorporates best practices for our business, and complies with the requirements of the New York Stock Exchange and Securities & Exchange Commission.


There is winning at all costs and there is winning the right way

At Molson Coors, winning the right way matters to us. Our Shared Values unite us and guide our actions. This belief is the cornerstone of our Ethics and Business Conduct program.

Our Audit Committee of the Board of Directors and our internal Ethics and Compliance Committee, comprised of our CEO and his direct reports, help set the direction of our program and hold themselves accountable to the same standards of ethical behavior.

  • Corporate Governance

    Our Board of Directors is elected by the stockholders to oversee their interests and to foster the long-term success of the Company in accordance with the provisions of our Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws. The Board serves as the ultimate decision-making body of the Company, except for those matters reserved for or shared with the stockholders. The Board selects and oversees the members of senior management, who are charged with conducting the business of the Company.
