Long-term performance risks
We group our risks into strategic, financial, operational and external risks, which we believe could potentially adversely impact our employees, operations, performance and assets.
Throughout the year we have critically reviewed and evaluated the risks the Group faces. This list is not exhaustive and it is likely to change as some risks assume greater importance than others during the course of the year.
Our business risk systems combined with the Board's ownership of strategic risks ensure that risk management is embedded in the business, aligned with our business model and is directly linked to strategic delivery.
Our assessment of the most significant risks and uncertainties which could impact the Group's long-term performance is outlined in this section of the report. These risks are not set out in any order or priority and they do not comprise all the risks and uncertainties we face.
