The summary table of Sodexo’s principal risks shows a classification of the risks by reference to the pillars of Sodexo’s Strategic Agenda, as well as risks from the external environment. As outlined in 22.214.171.124, each risk is assessed using impact and probability to give an evaluation of the inherent risk, and then a third criteria “level of control” is used to evaluate the overall net risk. The table below shows the net risk assessment. The most significant risks are presented at the top of each category, and the materiality of each risk shown is using a two-level rating scale, as follows:
The tables describing Sodexo’s principal risk factors (see below) give an estimate of their timeframe (short-term, medium term or long-term), their possible impact and examples of measures implemented to reduce these risks.
The risk timeframe is shown as follows:
