ELEXON governance and finances

This page contains the ELEXON reports relating to governance, business ethics, environmental policy, security, and finances.


Early in 2013, the BSCCo Board and BSC Panel jointly commissioned an independent review of BSC Governance. They appointed former Council of Lloyd’s deputy Chairman Bill Knight to undertake the review.

The review, published July 2013, looks at ELEXON’s current governance with regard to the confines of the BSC, particularly in the light of discussions over recent years in relation to changes to BSCCo’s vires.

ELEXON committees

The Nomination Committee is responsible for overseeing the process for appointments to the board. Remuneration committee is appointed to lead the process for remuneration of the Company Chairman, the Chief Executive and the Executive Team.

Environmental policy

We recognise that our operations inevitably have an impact on the environment. ELEXON is committed to respecting the environment and seeks to minimise the potentially harmful effects of its activities as far as reasonably practicable. Where practical, ELEXON will seek to use providers who have environmental policies compatible with its own. The objective of ELEXON’s environmental policy is to aim to continually monitor and reduce its impact on the environment through the use of recycled resources, recycling, safe disposal of electrical and hazardous waste, redundant stationery & equipment, and energy saving measures.
