  • Achieve strategic planning results with controlled risk;
  • Incorporate risk metrics into corporate objectives;

Neoenergia’s Corporate Risk Management General Policy defines the principles, guidelines and structure for risk management, being complemented by specific policies related to certain risks, corporate functions and business of the group, which includes risk limits/references, updated and approved annually by the Board of Directors.


Integrated Risk Control and Management Model

The Corporate Risk Management General Policy and its basic principles are implemented through an integrated risk control and management model, supported by the Global Risk Committee and supported by an adequate definition and establishment of functions and responsibilities at different levels (operational and control), and in procedures, methodologies and support tools appropriate to the different stages and activities of the model, which include:

a) The establishment of a structure of policies, guidelines, limits and risk indicators, as well as the respective mechanisms for their approval and development, reviewing and establishing the risk appetite assumed annually in a qualitative and quantitative manner, in accordance with the objectives established in the multiannual plan and in the annual budgets;

b) Continuous identification of the relevant risks and threats, considering their possible impact on corporate objectives and results;

c) Analysis of these risks, in each one of the businesses and corporate functions, and in a consolidated form in the Group;

d) Measurement and control of risks following consistent procedures and standards common to the group;

e) Analysis of the risks associated with new investments, as an essential element in decision making, assessing their risk-return, including the risks of assets integrity and associated with climate change;

f) Maintenance of an internal control system for compliance with policies, guidelines and limits, through appropriate procedures and systems, including contingency plans necessary to mitigate the impact of risk materialization;

g) Continuous assessment of the suitability and efficiency of the application of a system of best practices and recommendations regarding risks for its possible incorporation in the management model; and
