HENRY BOOT PLC
('Henry Boot' or 'the Group')

Establishment of new Responsible Business Committee

 

The Board of Henry Boot PLC, one of the UK's leading and long-standing property investment and development, land promotion and construction companies, is pleased to announce the establishment of a new Responsible Business Committee.

The aims of the Responsible Business Committee are to support the Board and Executive Committee of the Group with the development, delivery, and evaluation of the Group's new Responsible Business Strategy, to advise on proposed changes to reporting and governance, and to incorporate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) ambitions and targets in the Group's commercial strategy.

The Responsible Business Committee is chaired by Non-executive Director, Peter Mawson, who has a wealth of experience across the property and built environment industry, from both public and private sector perspectives, together with extensive planning expertise.

Members of the Responsible Business Committee include fellow Non-executive Directors Joanne Lake, James Sykes and Gerald Jennings, along with the Chief Executive Officer and Group Finance Director, who will each be responsible for providing input and insight, together with sponsorship and support of a number of different pillars across the ESG agenda. Committee support will also be provided by Amy Stanbridge, General Counsel and Company Secretary.

The establishment of the Responsible Business Committee coincides with the launch of the first phase of the Group's new Responsible Business Strategy - 135 Henry Boot. The Committee will play a crucial role in providing oversight and support with the delivery of the Strategy and the Group's approach to reporting and governance.  

Chief Executive Officer, Tim Roberts, said: "This is an exciting step forwards for us as a Group, to have representation of our ESG agenda at the highest level and to ensure that these matters are given the importance they deserve. Our Board were very keen to make sure that issues such as the climate change agenda, diversity and inclusion, and community engagement received sufficient prominence and are incorporated into our commercial planning and decision making. This Committee will support the Group as we build on our foundations of responsibility and up our collective responsibility to our people, partners, places and planet."
