At Spectris we are committed to maintaining high standards of corporate governance, both at Board level and throughout the Group. We see this as fundamental to the effective and responsible management of the business and for the delivery of shareholder value over the long term. The skills and experience of the Board is set out in the 2015 Annual Report and Accounts.
We particularly emphasise the strong relationship that exists between ethics and governance and the role of the Board in demonstrating ethical leadership. The standards we require are set out in our Code of Business Ethics, which is communicated to all our employees and business partners.
