Stellantis Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Framework
ERM Governance Structure
The whole company is responsible for risk management. The Company has a robust risk management governance structure that involves many committees, regions, business functions, risk owners, and ERM. This allows them to manage business risks and devise the most effective strategies to reduce them. To promote proactive risk management throughout Stellantis, a Global Risk Management Committee has been established (GRMC). It is headed by the Head of HR & Transformation. Members include representatives from the legal and finance functions, as well as internal audit, risk management, and business functions. The GRMC guides the Company in its overall strategic Risk management decisions.
Strategy Setting and Risk Appetite
Stellantis N.V. governance committees, which are composed of senior management responsible to support risk governance, and ensuring alignment between strategy and business objectives. ERM is integrated into the strategic plan and business goals by the GRMC members of the governance committees. Stellantis governance committees work in concert with the Strategy Council to provide direction and guidance, approve and review the Global Enterprise Risk Assessment results, as well as accountability for managing significant risks. Stellantis N.V.’s strategy, as well as its risk appetite, is overseen and managed by the Board of Directors.
Enterprise Risk Assessment
Each year, the Enterprise Risk Assessment is done to identify and prioritize major risks based on their importance. It uses a bottom-up approach through interviews with representative business function managers. The likelihood, effect, and control effectiveness criteria are used to evaluate risk scenarios. The results of the assessment are combined on a risk map. These risk maps can then be compared with risk thresholds in order to determine priority and treatment methods. After the assessment, the risk map is reviewed by the executive leadership and presented to the Strategy Council. The final validation by Audit Committee follows.
Risk Mitigation and Monitoring
Major risks are given to Risk Owners who are responsible for deploying appropriate risk mitigation measures. The Strategy Council is informed about the ERM team’s progress in implementing mitigation steps.
Risk Management Integration and Culture Dissemination
The management draws on information from both external and internal sources to support enterprise risk management. ERM relies on the support and guidance of Compliance Champions to support the business in continuous risk management process improvements and promote a culture of proactively identifying, evaluating, and monitoring risks. They are responsible for updating the annual Risk Assessments of their departments and supervising the risk mitigation plans.
