Section 172(1) Statement
The directors of the group, as those of all UK companies, must act in accordance with the duties set out under Chapter 2 of the Companies Act 2006. This includes the provisions set out under Section 172 of the Act which covers the ‘Duty to promote the success of the company’.
In summary these require that a director of a company must act in the way they consider, in good faith, would be most likely to promote the success of the company for the benefit of its members as a whole, and in doing so have regard (amongst other matters) to:
(a) the likely consequences of any decision in the long term,
(b) the interests of the company’s employees,
(c) the need to foster the company’s business relationships with suppliers, customers and others,
(d) the impact of the company’s operations on the community and the environment,
(e) the desirability of the company maintaining a reputation for high standards of business conduct, and
(f) the need to act fairly as between members of the company.
The board of directors of Hunt Forest Group Limited consider, both individually and together, that we have acted in a way that we consider, in good faith, would be most likely to promote the success of the group for the benefit of its members as a whole, having regard to the stakeholders and matters set out above, in the decisions we have taken in the year ended 31st January 2021.
In this regard we have been working as a board towards achieving a number of strategic aims during the year. These include the development and growth of the business, the alignment of operations within the group in order to achieve synergies in the future and using the combined knowledge of staff within the group to create a successful operation across all depots.
In our decision making process we consider both short term and long term consequences of our actions and ensure that we also take into careful consideration the impact of any decisions on other stakeholders. These include our employees, customers, suppliers and the local community in which we operate.
