RISK MAPPING EXERCISE 4.7.1. The mapping of risks relating to the duty of vigilance draws on the Group’s overall risk mapping exercise as well as the Group’s main corporate responsibility challenges. The methodology used for the mapping of risks relating to the duty of vigilance is similar to that used for the Group’s general risk mapping exercise. The risk areas listed below were analysed and prioritised in line with their severity and likelihood of occurrence in the context of the Group’s business activities and those of its suppliers and subcontractors:

Human rights and fundamental freedoms: diversity and equal p opportunity, freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining, protection of personal data, respect for the rights of local communities, preventing child labour and forced labour within the supply chain; Health and safety: right to safe and healthy working conditions p (e.g. access to buildings, sanitation, safety and security of business travel), prevention of occupational illnesses, healthcare benefits and workplace prevention measures for the Group and its supply chain; Environment: GHG emissions, treatment of polluting waste, air p and soil pollution, depletion of raw materials, soil erosion and degradation, degradation of ecosystems and biodiversity in the supply chain.

Each department with oversight for issues involving the duty of vigilance is responsible for monitoring the risks identified in the mapping of risks relating to the duty of vigilance. All of these departments are involved in the identification and implementation of reasonable and appropriate vigilance measures for their respective areas of responsibility. They report on their monitoring activities at the Group’s steering committee meetings and twice a year to the Corporate Responsibility and Sustainable Development Committee. The risk mitigation and prevention measures put in place with regard to the duty of vigilance are reviewed as part of the Group’s internal control procedures and are the focus of a consolidated report drawn up each year by the Internal Control Department and presented to Executive Management.
