Board responsibility and board committees
The Board’s principal duty is to create and deliver sustainable shareholder value through setting Barclays’ strategy and overseeing its implementation.
Certain responsibilities are delegated to Board Committees, which assist the Board in carrying out its functions and ensure that there is independent oversight of internal control and risk management.
We see our suppliers as an extension of our business and key in helping us become the bank of choice. Our aim is to develop world-class, value-adding partnerships with our suppliers and support innovative solutions that put clients and customers at the heart of what we do.
