Stagecoach Group and its Board remain committed to maintaining a corporate governance structure appropriate to the Group and its strategy. The Stagecoach Board is accountable to shareholders for the Group’s activities and is responsible for the effectiveness of corporate governance practices within the Group in conformity with the Combined Code on Corporate Governance.
We provide detailed information on our website about our corporate governance arrangements and management structures, as well as a range of disclosures recommended by the Combined Code, describing how the principles of good corporate governance that are set out in the Combined Code have been applied. In line with best practice, separate reports are provided from each of our Board Committees: the Audit Committee, Nomination Committee, Health, Safety and Environmental Committee and Remuneration Committee.
