High standards of governance are critical to our sustainability. We have a set of governance structures and practices in place designed to ensure that our company is run responsibly in the best interests of its shareholders and other stakeholders.
Our Board of Directors is responsible for the strategy, activities and financial performance of the company, together with the efficient use of its resources and social, environmental and ethical matters.
The Directors are collectively responsible and accountable to our shareholders for the long-term sustainable success of the Group.
The Board has a key role in both setting the strategy and ensuring that its implementation is done by management operating responsibly within our governance framework, whilst clearly demonstrating our values and high ethical standards.
The Directors are also mindful of their legal duties to act in the way they consider, in good faith, will be most likely to promote the success of the Company for its shareholders whilst having regard to the interests of other stakeholders.
The Board delegates matters to Board Committees. Clearly defined terms of reference and written limits support these delegations.
The Imperial Brands Code of Conduct sets out the responsible behaviours we expect from employees in their dealings with colleagues, customers, consumers, suppliers, agents, intermediaries, advisers, governments and competitors. All employees and business partners are expected to act with integrity in accordance with the standards of behaviour set out in the Code.
