Governance strategy

We believe in creating and maintaining a culture that promotes our values. The Board sets and oversees the Group’s overall risk management strategy and the effectiveness of the Group’s internal controls, with support from the audit committee and the Head of Internal Audit.

We strive to establish good governance and risk management by implementing policies, procedures, training and communication within wholly owned subsidiaries, and by offering advice and support to our affiliate businesses.

The Pentland Brands policies are set out in its ‘Our Standards’ document. All affiliate businesses (including JD Sports Fashion plc) have their own independent boards and set their own policies on corporate governance and risk management.
