Governance | G4-46

Highest governance body's role on reviewing the effectiveness of the organization's risk management processes for economic, environmental and social topic

The Executive Board regularly informs the Supervisory Board and Auditing Committee of existing risks and their development. Specific measures are proposed and implemented right from this early stage to mitigate the identified risks. The Group’s internal auditors also check on the implementation of these new measures and the results are given a critical assessment. The risk profile is thereby constantly monitored and measures necessary to mitigate risks are introduced. Specific staff members are assigned responsibility for this and held accountable in their performance review.
