When considering the balance of the Board or the nomination of new members or the appointment of senior executives, the range of skills, knowledge, experience and diversity of existing incumbents are taken into account, including gender. The Company seeks to promote diversity at Board level, including gender, although does not set targets for race, age, sexual orientation or gender when making appointments to the Board. The key factors considered are those which will result in the appointment of the best qualified individuals who can best serve the interests of all of the stakeholders of the Company.
