In 2017, the new methodology for identifying and assessing these sustainability risks was approved. According to this methodology, the following climate change, environmental, social, labour, governmental and corruption risks are analysed for each country in the business that operates according to economic and financial consequences, the importance of the issue for each business, and the potential impact on its reputation and the management by the company of each risk.
