The Board remains focused on strong corporate governance and effective risk management.

The Board is accountable to shareholders for sustainable financial performance and long-term shareholder value. It meets these aims by approving the Group’s strategy and ensuring that the necessary resources are in place to achieve the agreed strategic aims and objectives.
