For CPP Group, a sound governance framework underpins our ability to achieve our strategic goals and deliver long-term value for stakeholders.
The Board has adopted the Quoted Companies Alliance Corporate Governance Code (‘QCA Code’) which provides a flexible but rigorous outcome-orientated framework that we believe is well suited to the Group. We operate a truly international business, employing colleagues from very different cultures. Internal controls are built around clear Group-wide policies, national procedures consistent with those policies, and a strong internal assurance function reporting on compliance.
An overview of how the Group currently complies with each of the ten principles of the QCA Code is given in our Corporate Governance Statement. Further details may be found in our Annual Report & Accounts.
Supported by its committee structure, the Board devotes quality time to monitoring the Group’s performance and the application of Group policies and standards across the Group.
Our governance framework
The Board comprises seven Directors – the Chairman, two Executive Directors and three Non-Executive Directors.
