The Board’s principal responsibility is to ensure the long-term, sustainable success of the Group as a whole. It’s accountable to stakeholders for the Group’s financial and operational performance. It’s responsible for taking strategic decisions and providing oversight across the Group. And ultimately, it’s here to protect the interests of our stakeholders.
The Board aims to lead with integrity. Lead sustainably. And lead commercially. Making sure that value is created for all the Group’s stakeholders. The Board also provides leadership to executive and senior management. And it applies a robust governance framework to make sure this leadership delivers effectively.
The Board is also responsible for ensuring the Group has the support and resources – effectively deployed – to realise its strategic objectives and long-term success. The Group’s risk management framework supports the strategic aims of the Group, with controls to help mitigate identified risks. The Board regularly reviews the internal controls and overall risk management framework, with support from the Audit Committee.
