Responsibility, Ethics & Governance
The Group contributes to charitable and social organisations in the areas in which it operates, with an emphasis on education and health care.
The Group subscribes to the principles set out in the King Reports on corporate governance. The primary objective of any code of corporate governance is to ensure that directors and managers, to whom the running of large corporations has been entrusted by the shareholders, carry out their responsibilities faithfully, placing the interests of the corporation ahead of their own. This objective is met through the establishment of structures and processes to ensure that management is meeting its responsibilities.
The Group has a formalised system of corporate governance in place and complies substantially with the major recommendations of the code.
In terms of the Group’s code of ethics, directors and employees are required to observe the highest ethical standards ensuring that business practices are conducted in a manner which is beyond reproach.
