Doing business inherently involves taking risks. By taking balanced risks, we strive to continuously build on being a financially sound and sustainable company. Risk management is therefore an important element of our corporate governance and strategy development. Through our risk management initiatives, we seek to provide reasonable assurance that our business objectives can be achieved and our obligations to customers, shareholders, employees and society can be met.
We show the most significant risk factors which we have managed this year below. A graph is used to indicate how great the chance is of a risk occurring and the possible impact of the risk on our strategic ambitions. We also provide mitigating measures for the square ‘high impact’ and ‘big chance’. The overview is not intended to be an exhaustive list.
