Risk assessment


Etteplan assesses business risks annually. Based on this systematic risk assessment, we adjust our operations as necessary. In the risk assessment conducted in 2018, the overall risk level was higher than in the previous year due to an increase in strategic and operational risks. Other risks remained at the same level as in 2017.
