Enterprise risk management process

The Snam group, in line with the indications of the Code of Corporate Governance and international best practices, has instituted, under the direct supervision of the General Counsel, the Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) unit, which operates within the wider Internal Control and Risk Management System, in order to manage the integrated management process of corporate risks for all Group companies.

Snam’s dedicated ERM department manages and oversees the following main activities:

  • Risk identification and measurement;
  • Enterprise valuation and prioritisation;
  • Definition of the management strategy;
  • Monitoring and reporting;
  • Maintenance and evolution of the model.

Identification and measurement

of risk events relating to corporate processes and external risk factors that could influence the achievement of corporate goals, either through direct impacts on results and corporate finances (lower revenue or higher costs) or through intangible negative effects on other types of capital, especially the "licence to operate".

Enterprise valuation and prioritisation

Each event is assigned an "enterprise measurement", which summarises, for each risk, the different measurements carried out by the risk owner and by centralised units with specialist expertise. The prioritisation of risks is defined by combining the measurement of impact and probability.

Definition of the management strategy

For all risks, management measures are identified, together with any specific interventions and the relevant implementation time frames, associated with a type of risk management from among those that have been codified. The management plans for the main risks are presented to the Control and Risk Committee.

Monitoring and reporting

The risk mapping is periodically updated according to the enterprise measurement, and at least once a year, including for low-priority risks. Periodic reporting guarantees, at the various corporate levels, the availability and representation of information relating to the management and monitoring of the relevant risks.

Maintenance and evolution of the model

The eRM model is maintained continuously and independently of the phases of the process, with the aim of constantly ensuring an effective model that reflects the technological and methodological progress made in the field of risk management.

The main enterprise risks identified and monitored were broken down into financial and non-financial risks (strategic risks, legal and non-conformity risk and operational risks).
