Section 172 Statement
The directors, in line with their duties under section 172 of the Companies Act 2006, aim to conduct business with the intention of promoting the success of the company for the benefit of its members as a whole. In order to do so, a range of matters are considered when making decisions for the long-term. Through an open culture and regular communication with our key stakeholders, we have been able to develop a clear understanding of their needs and objectives which we regularly reassess. We aim to consider stakeholders perspective in order to understand the likely consequences on all parties of the decisions and actions which we take. This in turn ensures that our strategy is more fully understood and supported. The directors also have a regard to a number of broader factors, including the impact of the company’s operations on the community and environment and ensuring responsible business practices and high levels of internal compliance are adhered to.
