Further development of the risk management system

As part of the continuous development and improvement of the risk management system, a methodology for analyzing human rights-related and environmental risks in the company's own business and at direct suppliers was developed and integrated into the risk management process. In particular, the provisions of the Act on Corporate Due Diligence Obligations in Supply (LkSG) were complied with. The risk analysis required by the LkSG will be carried out once a year starting from fiscal year 2023 onwards, as well as on an ad-hoc basis if a greatly changed or expanded risk situation in the supply chain is to be expected.
