Corporate Governance

A well-governed business

The IHS Group is committed to the maintenance and development of the highest standards of corporate governance. The Board has an appropriate balance of executive, non-executive and independent directors, and a blend of knowledge, skills, objectivity and experience that serves the Group and its stakeholders well. 

Corporate governance at IHS is built into the framework of the company's internal procedures, practices and activities. This ensures that controls are in place to protect the reputation of our customers and investors along with our own – a reputation that is built on performance, transparency, efficiency and quality of service delivery.
