Risk management

Policy and approach

We provide clear guidelines for risk management and emergency response in accordance with the Asahi Kasei Group Basic Regulation for Risk Management & Compliance.

Reviews to identify latent risks in each business unit

Managers responsible for Risk Management & Compliance are designated in each SBU, core operating company, and subsidiary. They work to thoroughly identify, assess, and analyze their related risks, and to plan and implement measures to mitigate serious risks. Through the Risk Management & Compliance Committee, we confirm and follow-up on the state of risk management in each business unit.

Crisis response system

Due to accidents, incidents, or problems, if Asahi Kasei Group operations are significantly damaged or would cause serious adverse effects on the general public, we have a system to establish a group emergency response headquarters which works with the relevant divisions and departments to ensure that the proper response is taken.

In fiscal 2017, we established the Asahi Kasei Group Emergency Response Regulation which stipulates basic policy when an emergency occurs, standards to institute an Emergency Response Headquarters, and the functions thereof.
