Risk Management
The objective of risk management is to remove or reduce the likelihood and effect of risks before they occur, and deal effectively with actual problems if they do.
BAE Systems sets out clear requirements for the management and reporting of risk to support the delivery of the Company’s objectives and to meet the requirements of good corporate governance.
Our Risk Management policy has particular focus on business risk (including non-financial risks), being all risks that normally sit outside of projects.
Our line leaders must ensure that their businesses have a comprehensive risk and opportunity management plan to cover the risks and opportunities to their business.
For those risks that are identified as being unacceptable, steps shall be taken to produce a clear cost effective strategy and implement action plans to manage the risks and to reduce them to a tolerable and acceptable level.
