The Management Board is also responsible for risk management. One essential aspect is to ensure the exchange of risk-related information within the company and between ARA AG and its owners and the Supervisory Board. In this context, risk means possible positive or negative deviations from the company goals and benchmarks.
Our risk management activities focus on systematically identifying, avoiding and minimising risk, as well as on taking adequate precautionary measures. These goals are achieved by analysing, evaluating and minimising possible sources of risk. For instance, the volatility risk of revenues from selling secondary raw materials has increased sharply since the economic crisis of 2008/2009.
