Audit & Risk Committee
The Committee has four scheduled meetings every year. It oversees the Company's systems for internal financial control, risk management and financial reporting.
The Remuneration Committee oversees the remuneration arrangements for Babcock's Directors and senior employees across all Divisions. It has five scheduled meetings per year and will also meet on an ad hoc basis as the need arises. The Committee is keenly conscious of the importance of having in place a fair remuneration structure, one that strikes a balance between rewarding employees' hard work and shareholder's interests.
