Risk Management

Identified Group Major Risks

We clarified risks taking into account the business characteristics of each division and the surrounding businesses, including global political, economic and social conditions. Subsequently, risk assessment was conducted from the viewpoint of probability and impact on the business. By following the assessment, risk map was created and group major risks were identified. The contents of major risks were deliberated by the Risk Management & Compliance committee and agreed at the board meeting.
