Risk assessment
 

Etteplan assesses business risks annually. Based on this systematic risk assessment, we adjust our operations as necessary. A uniform group-wide risk management assessment that covers all risk categories has been conducted annually in connection with the strategy process since 2011. In the assessment, we focus particularly on monitoring changes in previously identified risks, identifying new business risks and developing proactive risk management.
