We are committed to high standards of corporate governance and manage the business honestly, transparently and in accordance with the 2018 UK Corporate Governance Code, all applicable laws and in line with best practice.

Good governance not only ensures we behave with integrity and treat our customers, employees, suppliers and local communities properly, while respecting the environment, it also helps us ensure our shareholders receive a good return on their investment.

"The highest standards of corporate governance are ingrained in our culture, allowing our shareholders to be confident that what we do, we do right." 


Jamie Pike, Chair

The Board relies on the Group Executive Committee to run the business, holding them accountable against targets and standards, while always embracing the values of collaboration, integrity and respect to achieve our goals.
