UK Corporate Governance Code Compliance Statement
Strong corporate governance has a key role to play in protecting our business and its long-term success. Our corporate governance report is set out on pages 62 to 69 of the Annual Report 2016 and is a summary of the system of corporate governance adopted by Rotork. We are subject to the UK Corporate Governance Code (the Code), which was revised in 2014. Throughout the year ended 31 December 2016, Rotork plc fully complied with the Code. The Code is available to download at www.frc.org.uk
Corporate governance does not stop at the boardroom. It is important that the strong governance principles demonstrated by the Board are carried on throughout the Group at every level and in every location. As we continue to grow through acquisition, it becomes increasingly important to ensure that the culture of sound governance is applied worldwide in a consistent and unified way to ensure Rotork’s unique culture is retained and developed.
