Corporate Governance

Overview

The Board's role is to provide leadership of the Company, and it is responsible to the shareholders for the long term success of the Company.

Our corporate governance framework – set out in the diagram below – is appropriate for a company of our size and FTSE 250 status. A continued focus on ensuring accountability, transparency and fairness in our dealings with all of our stakeholders, in particular our shareholders, customers, employees, suppliers and our environmental impact, balanced with the need to support the delivery of the Group’s strategic objectives will ensure we are well positioned to continue to develop our business.

Our governance activities comply fully with the provisions and principles of the 2016 UK Code of Corporate Governance and further details can be found in the Corporate Governance Report of our Annual Report for the year ended 31 December 2018 

The Coats Group Board remit includes:

  • Monitoring and challenging performance against plan;
  • Co-developing strategy with executive management;
  • Leveraging Non-Executive Director expertise beyond the boardroom; and
  • Ensuring good corporate governance. 

All matters are reserved for the Board unless specifically listed in the terms of reference for one of the Committees of the Board (which are available for viewing here) or where the Board has delegated authority to senior executive management.
