Establishment of new ESG Committee
The Board of Pod Point Group Holdings plc (the "Board") is pleased to announce that it has established a new Environmental, Social and Governance ("ESG") Committee (the "Committee").
Although Pod Point's entire mission is focused on the E and S of ESG and as a result of its IPO it is well-placed to deliver that mission, the Board recognises that there's significant work required in order to make sure the appropriate governance structure in place. Consequently, the aim of the ESG Committee is to provide oversight, on behalf of the Board, in relation to the Group's ESG strategy and activities. This will include, but is not limited to, ensuring the Company maintains appropriate policies and processes to effectively support its ESG framework, agreeing the ESG targets the Company should set, and overseeing the Company's ESG reporting and disclosures.
The Committee is chaired by Dr Margaret Amos (Independent Non-executive Director) and Karen Myers Independent Non-executive Director and Erik Fairbairn (Chief Executive Officer) will be members. The Committee will be supported by an ESG Working Group consisting of Margaret Amos, Erik Fairbairn and members of the executive team including among others General Counsel, Head of Policy & Public Affairs, Company Secretary and, once appointed, the new VP of Human Resources.
Gareth Davis, Chair, commented: "As we enter our first full year as a listed company, one of the Board's top priorities has been to establish appropriate and effective structures to govern how we manage ESG and our climate-related risk. Establishing the ESG Committee is an important step towards achieving this objective."
