The directors of TPXimpact must act in accordance with a set of general duties. Section 172 of the Companies Act requires Directors to take into consideration the interests of stakeholders in their decision making and is summarised as follows:
“A Director of a company must act in a way they consider, in good faith, would be most likely to promote the success of the company for the benefit of its shareholders as a whole and, in doing so have regard (amongst other matters) to:
- The likely consequences of any decisions in the long-term
- The interests of the company’s employees
- The need to foster the company’s business relationships with suppliers, customers and others
- The impact of the company's operations on the community and environment
- The desirability of the company maintaining a reputation for the high standards of business conduct, and
- The need to act fairly between shareholders of the company
This section serves as our Section 172 statement
The Board considers, both individually and together, that they have acted in the way they consider, in good faith, would be most likely to promote the success of the Company for the benefit of its shareowners as a whole (having regard to the stakeholders and matters set out in Section 172(i)(a-f) of the Act in the decisions taken during the year ending 31 March 2022).
Our vision is to deliver impactful, sustainable digital outcomes that make a positive difference to how individuals and society experience the world.
The Board recognises that engagement with the Company’s stakeholders is critical to the success of the business in realising this vision. The Directors continue to have regards to the interest of our people and the Company’s other stakeholders, including the impact of its activities on the community, the environment and the Company’s reputation when making decisions. We recognise that promoting the long-term sustainability and success of the Company is intertwined with creating value for, and engagement with, our stakeholders. It should therefore be at the core of our business.
Engagement with stakeholders is not new and has been a part of the business since its inception, but the obligation to include the Section 172 statement presents an opportunity to illustrate to you how your Board engages with stakeholders and how this has impacted on your Company’s decisions and strategies.
The Directors are fully aware of their responsibilities to promote the success of the Company in accordance with Section 172 of the Act. Our intention is to behave responsibly and ensure that management operates the business in a responsible manner, operating within the high standards of business conduct and good governance expected of us.
