Governance

Print Bookmark

Atkins is committed to high standards of corporate governance. A report on the Company’s corporate governance is included in our Annual Report.

Throughout the year ended 31 March 2016 the Company complied with all provisions of the UK Corporate Governance Code (the Code), published by the Financial Reporting Council (the FRC) in 2014, except the provision which requires all directors to attend the Company’s AGM and the chairman of the Audit, Remuneration and Nomination Committee to be available to answer questions at the meeting. Unfortunately, Raj Rajagopal, chairman of the Remuneration Committee, was unwell on the day of the 2015 AGM and was unable to attend.
