Risk management process

The corporate risk management process established in the Enterprise Risk Management Policy in the KGHM Polska Miedź S.A Group aims at ensuring that key risks are identified, assessed and analysed, and on the basis of these assessments appropriate Risk Response Plans are prepared and Corrective Actions are implemented which provide for the limitation of threats and realisation of assumed business goals and will support identification of opportunities to gain competitive advantage.

Individual risk management is defined in separate and detailed regulations of Group's companies. KGHM Polska Miedź S.A., as part of its activities, dynamically manages market risk, credit risk, financial liquidity and random incidents risk.
