We conduct our business with a steadfast awareness of the importance of managing risks.
HEPCO established the Risk Management Committee, which periodically ascertains risks that may have a significant impact on management and the status of our responses addressing such risks. The Risk Management Committee deliberates these items, reviews measures to counter such risks, and manages risks across the entire company.
The results of these deliberations are clearly set out in the following year's management policy as well as operational plans and other programs based upon this policy. In our management cycle which comprises HEPCO Group management policies and other programs, we strive to reduce and prevent risks from actualizing by systematically understanding these risks, formulating response strategies, verifying their implementation, and other actions.
In addition, we have prepared specific rules and clarified the command and control structure for natural disasters and other emergencies so as to minimize damage and restore operations quickly.
