Marshalls is committed to business integrity, high ethical values and professionalism in all its activities. The Board is accountable to shareholders for good corporate governance, and seeks to promote consistently high standards of governance throughout the Group which are recognised and understood by all.
Good governance involves good and effective leadership, robust systems and processes that are regularly tested, and a good understanding of risk and risk appetite. The Board seeks to add value through constructive dialogue and challenge, engagement with shareholders and other stakeholders, and with a strong focus on the strategic agenda.
Corporate responsibility, awareness and mitigation of adverse impact on our environment, and positive engagement with our community and employees have long been core values of Marshalls. We aim to align our business values, purpose and strategy with the social, economic and environmental needs of our stakeholders, embedding responsible and ethical business policies and practices in everything we do.
