Corporate Governance

Our Board of Directors, which is led by an independent chair, oversees the business of the company. It establishes overall policies and standards for us and reviews the performance of our management. The Board operates pursuant to Bylaws and a set of written Corporate Governance Guidelines that set forth the company’s overall corporate governance philosophy and the governance policies and practices that the company has established to assist in governing the company and its affiliates. Various other policies and practices also set the standard for our performance and operations.

NorthWestern Energy takes seriously the responsibility of all employees to perform their duties in a legal, ethical and responsible manner and is working hard to establish a culture of openness, honesty and integrity.
