At the heart of good governance is culture

Welcome to the governance section of Taylor Wimpey's website. Here you can find out about the detailed policies that help us to ensure the effective governance of our Company.

The way in which we run our business is of paramount importance to us and is what enables Taylor Wimpey to successfully deliver on our purpose to create great homes and thriving communities.

At the heart of good governance is culture. Our values and principles ensure Taylor Wimpey has a strong culture of doing the right thing. The Board builds on this ethos and ensures we have effective systems and processes in place to actively manage risks arising from both our operations and the wider macro economic environment, and we strive for continuous improvement in our business practices.

Along with environmental and social considerations as part of a wider ESG agenda (see our sustainability section), effective governance is a key part of ensuring that Taylor Wimpey remains a sustainable business. This means ensuring that risks are identified, prioritised, and managed, that the processes and systems are in place with appropriately qualified people and resources assigned throughout the business.
