Good Corporate Governance

Corporate governance is about how the Board sets the strategic direction for, and manages the risks faced by, the Group in order to deliver value for the Company’s investors after taking due account of the Company’s wider stakeholders’ views.

Sir John Armitt, Chairman

"At its simplest level, we, as a Board, believe that good corporate governance is about having the best people governing our business and taking decisions on its behalf at every level of the organisation. We believe that the best people are those who are invested in the Company’s Purpose, behave in accordance with its Values and are fully engaged in delivering its strategy."
