Management & Governance

Board committees

There are four board committees, the Audit committee, Remuneration committee, Nominations committee and the Committee on social and environmental accountability. Each committee plays a vital role in ensuring that high standards of corporate governance are maintained throughout the Group. Committee terms of reference are reviewed annually by the board and the committees to ensure they continue to be at the forefront of best practice and are posted on the Group's website. Minutes of all committee meetings are circulated to the board, with oral reports at the next board meeting. None of the executive directors are members of any of these committees.
