Insurance and risk management
The group’s practice regarding insurance includes an annual assessment, in conjunction with the group’s insurance brokers, of the risk exposure relative to assets and possible liabilities arising from business transactions. In addition, the group’s insurance programme is monitored by the risk and sustainability committee.
All risks are considered to be adequately covered, except political risks in the case of which as much cover as is reasonably available has been arranged. Self-insurance programmes are in operation covering primary levels of risk at a cost more advantageous than open-market premiums. Regular risk management audits are conducted by the group’s risk management consultants, whereby improvement areas are identified and resultant action plans implemented accordingly. Assets are insured at current replacement values.
