We remain committed to the highest standards of corporate governance as we connect the UK on its journey to a net-zero future. The Board and its Committees play an active role in guiding the Group and leading its strategy and we are determined to ensure that we have a diverse mix of skills, capabilities and experience to steer the Group forward in an evolving energy landscape. In a business continuing to develop at pace, we maintain a culture of strong governance that underpins and encourages growth, whilst ensuring effective controls and safeguards are in place.
The values and ethical standards of the Group rest upon the principles of its Spirit values – Safe, Partnership, Improvement, Reliability, Integrity and Together – and the Board seeks to promote and exemplify these values in how it discharges its responsibilities. These principles are both ethically based and commercially essential to delivering our strategy and growth and to the long-term success of the Group.
