Leadership / governance

Risk management

The objective of the Perstorp Group’s risk management process is to proactively identify, evaluate and manage risks as early as possible in order to achieve both operational and strategic goals. Perstorp has categorized risks into the areas of strategic, operational and financial.

The full Risk management report can be found in the back section of the Perstorp Report of the Board of Directors 2016.

Corporate governance report

The Perstorp Group’s core values of responsibility, reliability and focused innovation are also central to corporate governance. Corporate governance includes the continual process of controlling and improving decision-making and business strategies, defining clear areas of responsibility and identifying and evaluating opportunities and risks for the Group. The overall aim is to maintain and develop order so that the business is controlled reliably and we are well equipped to face the development challenges and changes of the future. Corporate governance within the Perstorp Group is performed through the Annual General Meeting, the Board of Directors and the President in accordance with the Swedish Companies Act. The Group does not have a formal requirement to follow the Swedish code of corporate governance.
