Autogrill Group is exposed to external risks and uncertainties arising from general economic conditions or those specific to the industry in which it works, from the financial
markets and from frequent changes in legislation, as well as to risks generated by strategic decisions and operating procedures.
The Group Risk Management department ensures the uniform handling of risks across the different organizational units. Autogrill has developed a model based on the systematic identification, analysis and assessment of the risk areas that may hinder the achievement of strategic goals. The model helps evaluate the company’s overall exposure to risks, guide the necessary mitigation efforts, and reduce the volatility of business objectives.
The main risk areas — strategic, operational and financial — are presented below.
