GKN strategy

We are committed to providing long term shareholder value in the form of steadily growing earnings and dividends through the delivery of sustained growth in sales, profitability and cash generation.


We implement and monitor performance against strategy through key performance indicators (KPIs), both financial and non-financial.

Progress against these KPIs is reported regularly to the Board and senior management. In addition, certain financial KPIs are linked to executive remuneration.

See key performance indicators for more information.

Risk management

We have an extensive risk management framework designed to identify, assess and mitigate significant business risks which could impact delivery of our strategic plan.

Risk management processes operate throughout the Group at plant, divisional and corporate levels and regular reports are made to the Board and its Committees.

See Risks and uncertainties for more information.

Key capabilities

Superior technology, world class lean manufacturing, leveraging our global footprint, exceptional customer service, outstanding leadership and development for all are Group-wide key capabilities that underpin the delivery of our strategy.

At their heart are our Values which bind GKN together and guide our relationships with all our stakeholders.
