The Risk function of the Group’s Ethics, Compliance, Risk and Performance Department is responsible for managing the risk management approach. It rolls out the methodology and updates the procedures and tools necessary for the process.
The Business Unit (BU) risk correspondents, appointed by the BU heads, lead the approach within their BU. They coordinate the process for identifying, assessing and managing risks within their scope of responsibility.
