At HomeServe, we are convinced that good corporate governance underpins good business performance.
We are accountable to our stakeholders for ensuring that strong governance processes are in place and effective. We are fully committed to meeting all the required standards of corporate governance, and this extends to our approach to responsible business.
Our governance framework is designed to link doing business responsibly with achievement of our corporate strategy, and to support our Board in its decision making and oversight. Management of our responsible business agenda is overseen by the Corporate Responsibility Committee, chaired by the Chairman of the Board.
You can read more about the work of our Board and its committees in our latest Annual Report.

- Strategy and management
- Structure and capital
- Financial reporting and controls
- Internal controls
- Whistle blowing
- Board membership and other appointments
- Delegation of authority
- Corporate governance matters
