Governance and management of our CSR issues
The board considers the potential impact of social, environmental and ethical issues on the short and long-term value of the company through the corporate accountability and risk assurance committee (CARAC), the audit committee and the risk management and internal control procedure. The policies and programmes to manage social, environmental and ethical trends are reviewed regularly and are summarised above and provided in more detail in the accompanying corporate accountability report.
Account is taken of social, environmental and ethical matters in the training of directors, and the remuneration committee is aware of emerging views that the effect of social, environmental and ethical performance should be included in the design and implementation of its performance-related remuneration schemes.
Verification of social, environmental and ethical information is achieved through our internal control procedures and external assurance as presented in the corporate accountability report and on the website.
