Governance

Laing O’Rourke is committed to achieving corporate governance standards that meet the highest possible levels of integrity and compliance for a privately owned enterprise.

With this commitment in mind, we have adopted a Group Governance Framework based upon the Wates Corporate Governance Principles for Large Private Companies. A detailed review of how these Principles are applied is set out in the Corporate Governance Statement contained in our Annual Report and Financial Statements for the year ended 31 March 2020.

Good corporate governance is integral to our objective to sustain an organisational culture based on the Group’s vision and values, placing strong emphasis on upholding the highest standards of business conduct, ethics and integrity amongst the Group’s employees, supply chain and other business partners. This approach is encompassed in our Global Code of Conduct.
