Governance

    Openness, integrity and accountability – these principles, along with our drive for a consistently strong financial performance – determine how we run the company.

    Our governance teams are responsible for implementing our Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (CR&S) Strategy, and we set out our principles in our Code of Corporate Governance and Code of Conduct.

    We have two tiers of governance. The CR&S Executive Committee oversees our progress against these standards. The Board CR&S Committee monitors the Executive Committee.

    The CR&S Executive Committee is chaired by Gerard Manley, who has over 30 years’ experience in the Cocoa industry. The activities of the CR&S Committee and the function itself are managed by Dr Christopher Stewart, Global Head of CR&S. Both Gerard Manley and Christopher Stewart report directly to the CR&S Board Committee.

    If any employee discovers any unethical practice, the Code of Conduct explains that they must report it and without fear of reprisals.
