Governance 

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.

The Company has complied with all requirements of the 2018 UK Corporate Governance Code (the Code).  


The Board of Directors

The Board’s role is to provide leadership and direction to the Group. Supported by its Committees, it has established a strong governance framework which, together with our high ethical standards, supports the long-term sustainable success of the Group.

The Directors have a key role in setting our strategy and ensuring it is implemented responsibly within this governance framework. They are 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.


Board Committees

The Board delegates matters to Board Committees. Clearly defined terms of reference and written limits support these delegations.
