Corporate Governance

The Board is firmly committed to the highest standards of corporate governance and considers that good governance commences with an effective Board providing strong and respected leadership.

The Non-Executive Directors bring their wide experience to the boardroom to both support and develop business strategy and operations and to constructively challenge the Executive Directors.

In addition, the Board evaluation process which we introduced in 2002 supports the culture of constructive challenge and confirms that Non-Executive Directors are independent in their judgement.

During the year to 31 December 2014, as detailed in our Corporate Governance report on page 45 and in the Remuneration report on page 52, the Company complied fully with the requirements of the UK Corporate Governance Code (September 2012). Full details of this Code can be obtained from the Financial Reporting Council's website at
