A comprehensive analysis of non-financial risks requires cross-functional insights from Group management, business areas and local facilities.

We focus on the future to prepare for the changing business landscape and mitigate potential risks. The global trends described in the External influences – 2019 and beyond section will affect Electrolux in the coming years. Understanding and managing the non-financial risks and opportunities associated with these trends is an integral part of managing our business. Risks related to the each part of the value chain are described in Impacts throughout our value chain.

A number of Group functions are involved in identifying and managing non-financial risks in their area of responsibility. These risks are regularly reported to Group management and fed into our materiality process. Read more about how Electrolux manages risk in the Annual Report.
