Each year, a Board evaluation exercise is conducted, which generally involves a written questionnaire for all Directors and individual interviews, during which Board members are invited to evaluate and comment on the operation of the Board and its Committees. Every third year, the evaluation process is conducted by an external provider.
The results are collated into a report which is then submitted to the Board, setting out the principal issues raised and suggesting appropriate action points. More detail about the annual process and the results of each evaluation are set out in the Company’s Annual Report, the latest version of which can be found at Annual Report Summary .
