Sustainability risk management as part of comprehensive risk management at the Triglav Group
Following the adoption of the Triglav Group’s commitment to sustainability in 2020, the content related to sustainability and sustainability risks was upgraded in 2021 with the Group’s strategic ambitions in this field, incorporating care for sustainable development into the Company’s organisational structure. The Company is building a comprehensive sustainability risk management system; sustainability risks are part of non-financial risks. To this end, the risk appetite and internal risk management rules were defined for sustainability risks. At Group level, sustainability-related activities are coordinated and directed by the Sustainable Development Coordinator. The Company’s risk management function is responsible for the optimal integration of sustainability aspects of business into the risk management system, which are monitored by the Compliance and Sustainable Development Committee. The latter reports to the Risk Management Committee, which is responsible for the comprehensive management of the Group's most material risks. Decisions are made by the Management Board.
