The Corporate Governance Statement is accurate and up to date as at 15 September 2020 and has been approved by the board.

The annexure includes a key to where our corporate governance disclosures can be located.3

Date:

15 September 2020

Name of authorised officer

Stephen Rodgers

authorising lodgement:

1 "Corporate governance statement" is defined in Listing Rule 19.12 to mean the statement referred to in Listing Rule 4.10.3 which discloses the extent to which an entity has followed the recommendations set by the ASX Corporate Governance Council during a particular reporting period.

Listing Rule 4.10.3 requires an entity that is included in the official list as an ASX Listing to include in its annual report either a corporate governance statement that meets the requirements of that rule or the URL of the page on its website where such a statement is located. The corporate governance statement must disclose the extent to which the entity has followed the recommendations set by the ASX Corporate Governance Council during the reporting period. If the entity has not followed a recommendation for any part of the reporting period, its corporate governance statement must separately identify that recommendation and the period during which it was not followed and state its reasons for not following the recommendation and what (if any) alternative governance practices it adopted in lieu of the recommendation during that period.

Under Listing Rule 4.7.4, if an entity chooses to include its corporate governance statement on its website rather than in its annual report, it must lodge a copy of the corporate governance statement with ASX at the same time as it lodges its annual report with ASX. The corporate governance statement must be current as at the effective date specified in that statement for the purposes of Listing Rule 4.10.3.

Under Listing Rule 4.7.3, an entity must also lodge with ASX a completed Appendix 4G at the same time as it lodges its annual report with ASX. The Appendix 4G serves a dual purpose. It acts as a key designed to assist readers to locate the governance disclosures made by a listed entity under Listing Rule 4.10.3 and under the ASX Corporate Governance Council's recommendations. It also acts as a verification tool for listed entities to confirm that they have met the disclosure requirements of Listing Rule 4.10.3.

The Appendix 4G is not a substitute for, and is not to be confused with, the entity's corporate governance statement. They serve different purposes and an entity must produce each of them separately.

  1. Tick whichever option is correct and then complete the page number(s) of the annual report, or the URL of the web page, where your corporate governance statement can be found. You can, if you wish, delete the option which is not applicable.
  2. Throughout this form, where you are given two or more options to select, you can, if you wish, delete any option which is not applicable and just retain the option that is applicable. If you select an option that includes "OR" at the end of the selection and you delete the other options, you can also, if you wish, delete the "OR" at the end of the selection.

See notes 4 and 5 below for further instructions on how to complete this form.

Rodney Cameron

The length of service of each is as follows:

Karen Johnson

Rodney Cameron

Non-executive Director (Independent)

15/11/2011

  1. Due to the size of the Company, there is not a clear majority of the Board who are independent directors. In this regard the Company does not comply with recommendation 2.4. Given the relative size of the Company, the interests of the shareholders represented on the Board and the stage of its development, the Directors consider the current Board composition as appropriate. The situation will be monitored and changed in line with best practice as and when the Directors feel the company is of sufficient size.
  2. The Company has separate roles of Chairman and CEO/MD. The Company's Chairman is an Executive Chairman and as such is not an independent director. The Board believes that given Mr Ellice-Flint's vast executive and board experience in public companies, and specifically oil and gas companies, that Mr Ellice-Flint is best positioned to Chair the Company's Board of Directors. The Board believes that Mr Ellice-Flint appropriately discharges his duties as Chairman.
  3. The Company has (in accordance with the Board Charter) procedures in place for the induction and orientation of new directors and also provides (in accordance with the Board Charter) Directors with professional development and continuing education and training opportunities from time to time to develop and maintain the knowledge needed to perform their roles effectively as Directors.

Principle 3 - Act Ethically and Responsibly

3.1 Blue Energy's values are the guiding principles and basis for the culture of the organisation it aspires to be and expects from its directors and senior management. These values are interwoven into the positions and statements that Company makes in respect to Community & Ethics, Sustainability & Heritage, Vision/Mission/Strategy and its Corporate Governance Policies and Procedures.

C O R P O R A T E G O V E R N A N C E S T A T E M E N T 2 0 2 0

  1. The Company has established a Code of Ethics which sets out the Company's key values and how they should be applied within the workplace and in dealings with those outside of the Company. The Code of Ethics is available on the Company's website.
  2. The Company has also in accordance with recommendation 3.3 adopted a Whistle Blowers policy. It also is planning for the adoption of an Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy in compliance with recommendation 3.4. A copy of the Whistle Blowers policy is available on this website.

Principle 4 - Safeguard Integrity in Corporate Reporting

4.1 The Company has formed a Risk and Audit Committee consisting of two non-executive Directors both of whom are independent as defined by the ASX Corporate Governance Council's Principles. The Committee does not have three members as required by recommendation 4.1. The Board considers, given the size of the Company and the complexity of its operations and financial statements, that a Committee membership of two is currently sufficient to adequately discharge the Committee's functions. The Board does not believe that there would be any further benefit at this stage to appoint a third independent director to fulfil this role. The size and make-up of the Committee is periodically reviewed by the Board. The current members of the Risk and Audit Committee are:

Karen Johnson

Chairman, Independent Director

Rodney Cameron

Non-Executive Director, Independent Director

The qualifications, skills, experience and expertise of each committee member are detailed under Principle 2.2 of this Corporate Governance Statement and as detailed in the Directors Report included in the Annual Report for 2020 a copy of which can be located on the Company's website.

The Risk and Audit Committee formally reports to the Board after each of its meetings. Details of the number of meetings of the Risk and Audit Committee during each reporting period and attendance of members are set out in the Annual Report for 2020.

The external audit firm partner or an appropriate delegate responsible for the Company audit attends meetings of the Board and Audit Committee by invitation.

The Risk Oversight and Management Policy and the Risk and Audit Committee Charter, which includes information on procedures for the selection and appointment of the external auditor, and for the rotation of external audit engagement partners, are available on the Company's website.

  1. The Risk and Audit Committee keeps minutes of its meetings and includes them for review at the following Board Meeting. The Risk and Audit Committee members' attendance at meetings as compared to total meetings held is set out in the Directors' Report contained in the Annual Report.
  2. The Company has in place a procedure whereby prior to approval of financial statements by the Board (in addition to any formal management representation letter to the Company's auditor) the CEO and CFO provide a declaration in accordance with Sections 286 and 295(3)(b) of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) that financial records have been properly maintained, the financial statements comply with the accounting standards, and give a true and fair view of the financial position based on sound risk management and internal controls operating effectively.
  3. The Company has in place a procedure whereby it ensures that its external auditor attends its AGM, in accordance with the requirements of Section 250RA of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and is available to answer questions relevant to the audit.
  4. Recommendation 4.3 provides that a listed entity should disclose its process to verify the integrity of any periodic corporate report it releases to the market that is not audited or reviewed by an external auditor. The only periodic finance -based reports that the Company releases each year are the full year and half year accounts along with the quarterly Appendix 5Bs. The half year and full year accounts are audited and signed off the Company's independent external auditors. While the Appendix 5Bs are prepared internally, they are done so utilising the same accounting principles and accounts on which the audited half year and full year accounts are prepared and released. These reports are also reviewed by Risk and Audit Committee members and the Board as a whole.

Principle 5 - Make Timely and Balanced Disclosure

  1. The Company has adopted a continuous disclosure policy to ensure compliance with the continuous disclosure obligations under the ASX Listing Rules and the Corporations Act and to ensure all investors have equal and timely access to material information concerning the Company and that Company announcements are factual and presented in a clear and balanced way.
  2. The Company is committed to the promotion of investor confidence by ensuring that it meets its ASX reporting obligations and that trading in the Company's securities takes place in an informed market. In addition, there is an internal protocol that has been established involving the Executives of the Company, to arrange for the timely preparation and release of all announcements to the ASX. To ensure that Directors receive copies of all ASX announcements their emails have been recorded with the ASX email distribution list so that on an announcement being made an email confirming its release is independently sent to them by the ASX.
  3. Presentations that are made to analysts or investors are posted on the Company's website. If the presentations contain information that has not previously been announced to ASX that could have a material effect on the share price, the presentation is released to the ASX before the presentation is delivered. In addition, the website contains a function to allow interested parties to subscribe to receive electronic notification of public releases and other relevant material concerning the Company.

C O R P O R A T E G O V E R N A N C E S T A T E M E N T 2 0 2 0

In addition, all changes in Directors' interests in the Company's securities are promptly reported to the ASX in compliance with Section 205G of the Corporations Act and the ASX Listing Rules.

A summary and a copy of the Continuous Disclosure Policy is available on the Company's website, which details that all material announcements made to the market are circulated to the members of the Board.

Principle 6 - Respect the Rights of Shareholders

6.1 & 6.2 The Company has a Shareholder Communication Policy. Through this the Board aims to ensure that the shareholders are informed of the Company's governance and all major developments affecting the Company's state of affairs.

Through its shareholder communications, the Company aims to provide information that will allow existing shareholders, potential shareholders and financial analysts to make informed decisions about Blue Energy's value and to ensure that it meets its obligations under the ASX's continuous disclosure regime.

Information is communicated to shareholders through the:

  • Company website;
  • ASX Company Announcements platform;
  • Quarterly Operations Reports;
  • Half-yearReport;
  • Annual Report; and
  • other correspondence regarding matters impacting on shareholders (in accordance with the Shareholder Communications Policy) as required.

6.3 & 6.4 The Board encourages (through the Shareholder Communication Policy) full participation of shareholders at the Annual General Meeting to ensure a high level of accountability and association with the Company's strategy and goals, and also encourages the use of electronic communication with shareholders.

The Shareholder Communications Policy, designed to promote effective communication with shareholders, is available on the Company's website. Shareholders are encouraged to take advantage of the benefits of electronic communications by electing to receive communication from the Company and its share registry electronically.

In compliance with recommendation 6.4 and to ascertain the true intent of the Company's security holders the Board has decided that all resolutions at general meetings will be decided by poll.

Principle 7 - Recognise and Manage Risk

  1. The Company has the Risk and Audit Committee to oversee risk. Details of this Committee are given under Principle 4 of this Statement. Given the Company's size and the scale and complexity of the potential risks it is exposed to it is considered that a committee consisting of two independent, non-executive directors is sufficient to adequately manage those potential risks. The Committee meets three times in each reporting period. During the 2019-202019 reporting period the Committee met three times. Ms Johnson attended three meetings and Mr Cameron attended three meetings.
  2. The Company has a Risk Oversight and Management Policy. In accordance with that Policy, the Company has an established enterprise risk management program upgraded in accordance with the International Risk Standard AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009. It also has an established internal control program based upon the principles set out in the Australian Compliance Standard AS 3806:2006.
    The Company's enterprise risk management program addresses its material business risks. Each identified risk is individually assessed in terms of the likelihood of the risk event occurring and the potential consequences in the event that the risk event was to occur. CompliSpace Assurance software has been implemented through which material business risks are linked to mitigating controls. This software gives the Company the ability to monitor the performance of its enterprise risk and compliance programs in real time. It also ensures transparency of data and ease of reporting to the Board.
    Management provides to the Risk and Audit Committee and the Board a report as to the overall effectiveness of the Company's management of its material business risks during each reporting period. Having completed this the Board concluded that on the basis of the information provided and the recommendations of the Risk and Audit Committee, the Board was satisfied that the risk management framework continues to be sound and robust enough to address the risks that face the Company.
    In addition, for each reporting period the Board has receives a declaration from the CEO and the Executive Chairman that in their view:
    • the declaration provided in accordance with section 295A of the Corporations Act 2001 is founded on a sound system of risk management and internal control; and
    • the system of risk management and internal control, to the extent that they relate to financial reporting, are operating effectively and efficiently in all material respects.
  3. The Company does not have an internal audit function. The Audit and Risk Committee discharges the function of evaluating and continually improving the effectiveness of its risk management and internal control processes, and in doing so is subject to the overall supervision of the Board.

C O R P O R A T E G O V E R N A N C E S T A T E M E N T 2 0 2 0

  1. Risks associated with economic, environmental and social sustainability matters have been included as part of the risk management register to ensure that they are continually being monitored and assessed.
  2. A summary of the Company's Risk Oversight and Management Policy and risk management program is available on this website. The Risk and Audit Committee's Charter is also available on this website.

Principle 8 - Remunerate Fairly and Responsibly

  1. The Company does not have a dedicated Remuneration Committee but rather the task of ensuring that the level of director and executive remuneration is appropriate and not excessive, and that its relationship to performance is clear, is dealt with by the full Board. The Board Charter detailing this role is available on this website.
  2. The Company's Remuneration Policy as detailed in the Remuneration Report within the Annual Report for 2020 sets out its policies and practices regarding the remuneration of non-executive and executive directors and other senior executives. The Remuneration Policy is available on this website.
  3. Under the Securities Trading Policy Senior executives and Directors are prohibited from entering into transactions in associated products (such as derivates or contracts for differences) which limit the economic risk of participating in unvested entitlements under any equity based remuneration packages, such as options and employee incentive rights. Further, all relevant personnel are prohibited from entering into margin loans arrangements to fund the acquisition of any of the Company's securities for from entering into arrangements whereby their securities in the Company are used as collateral. A copy of the Securities Trading policy is available on this website.
