GKN is committed to high standards of corporate governance. We believe these are essential to our objective of providing long term shareholder value.
The Board is collectively responsible for the long term success of the Company. Its role is to provide entrepreneurial leadership of the Company within a framework of prudent and effective controls which enables risk to be assessed and managed. The Board sets the Company’s strategic aims, ensures that the necessary financial and human resources are in place for the Company to meet its objectives, and reviews management performance. It also sets the Company’s values and standards and ensures that its obligations to its shareholders (including reporting to shareholders on the Board’s stewardship) and others are understood and met.
