Risk Management Areas and Operation Mechanism

Enterprise Risk Management Areas 

The Enterprise Risk Management Committee consolidates risks in the areas of strategy, operation, finance and hazard.





Enterprise Risk Management Operation Mechanism

For above areas, evaluates the possibility of their occurrence and the severity of their impact on the company (the impact assessment includes finance, operations, personnel, and company reputation), draws a risk map, and defines the priority order and risk level of risk items. After balancing reasonable risks and preventive costs that the enterprise can sustain, the risk management plans are drawn up and adopted. The committee periodically reviews possibility and severity of risks for changes over time to monitor the effectiveness of risk management plans and related control operations. At the same time, we also grasp the opportunities that may accompany risks.





Key Risks Identification and Countermeasures

UMC targets strategic, operational, financial, and hazard risk areas, identifies key risks and formulates countermeasures, including environment, social, corporate governance and emerging global risks related to the company's operations. For detailed response measures, please refer to 2020 CSR Report Chapter 1-3 Implementing Risk Management.
