Governance

Strong Corporate Governance is fundamental to long-term success

Horizon’s Directors believe that strong Corporate Governance is fundamental to the immediate and long-term success of the business, and that the Board bears the ultimate responsibility to ensure that strategy, operations, and financial reporting are all underpinned by robust processes.

We are therefore committed to playing a central role in the Group’s governance by providing an external and independent perspective on matters material to our stakeholders, by establishing a framework that ensures that effective internal controls and risk management measures are in place, and by ensuring that good governance is part of a broader culture of openness, transparency, and responsibility that is felt at all levels of the organisation.
