We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of corporate governance throughout our operations and to ensuring that all of our activities are conducted transparently, ethically and efficiently. We believe that scrutinising all aspects of our business and reflecting on, analysing and improving our procedures will result in the continued success of the Company and improve shareholder value. The Company has chosen to formalise its governance policies by complying, with some exceptions, with the UK’s Quoted Companies Alliance Corporate Governance Code (the ‘QCA Code’).  Our Business Code of Conduct, which sets out the basic principles to be applied by all employees in all Group companies, is available at this link.
