Risk Management

Risk management is an inextricable part of Brisa’s culture and management processes, ensuring sustained business growth and safeguarding the value of the group.

The aim of Risk Management is to ensure the sustained growth of the businesses and to safeguard the value of the Brisa group, through the adoption of best practices, allowing in-house knowledge to be capitalised, and contributing to the achievement of strategic goals set forth at Group level. Brisa is exposed to 4 different categories of risks: 
 
  • Strategic Risks
  • Operational Risks
  • Financial Risks
  • Compliance Risks 

The Risk Management Policy is established at Group level, involving directly the governing bodies of the various companies of the Brisa Group, as well as all remaining corporate structures. 

As a cornerstone of the Company’s governance policy, Risk Management is present in Brisa’s culture and management processes. 

Employees are responsible for mitigating risk factors, minimizing their impact and identifying, whenever possible, opportunities for improvement and/or return. The Group’s integrated risk management is based on internationally recognised methodologies such as COSO (Committee of Sponsorship Organizations of the Treadway Commission) and ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) 31000 - Risk Management, which is developed as follows: 

 

 

The process implemented at Brisa, besides ensuring convergence between Risk Management and Strategic Planning, allows to update on a regular basis and in a systematic and over-arching way the main risks associated with the business portfolio. 

Additionally, it allows to determine respective control and/or mitigation measures, which in the current context of new business trends – evolution of efficient infrastructure management for the development of new mobility solutions - is particularly relevant to support management from a strategic perspective of sustained development of the entire company. 

Risk Categories
