ESB and Corporate Governance

Good governance is good business. In pursuit of our goal of strong and sustainable growth, ESB Board and management remain committed to transparency and accountability in all we do.

The Way we Work

The Way ESB is Structured

Our organisation is structured to allow for effective and efficient decision making with clear accountability.

The Way ESB Does Business

  • We comply with the Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies.
  • While ESB is not listed, we conform, as far as possible and on a voluntary basis, to the UK Corporate Governance Code.
  • Our Code of Ethics outlines our approach to responsible business behaviour.

The Way ESB Provides Assurance

  • Management assurance is provided by a combination of effective management processes and risk and compliance activities.
  • Independent assurance is provided primarily by internal audit and by our external auditors.
