Risk management

The Company’s risk management strategy is aimed at ensuring strategic and operational business sustainability, which is achieved through timely risk identification, assessment and proactive management taking into account the Company’s risk appetite and providing communication and coordination of employees at various levels.

The Company’s risk management system is a set of interrelated elements combined into a single process within which the Board of Directors, executives and employees, each at their own level, are involved in the identification of potential events that may affect the Company’s operations, as well as in the control of such events within the acceptable risk level/risk appetite. The distribution of functions and responsibilities (the Board of Directors, management, employees) within the risk management system is provided in the Company’s Risk Management Policy
