For risks relating to the duty of vigilance, the procedures for the regular assessment of the Group’s business activities and those of its subsidiaries, along with those of its main suppliers, are carried out at the level of the departments concerned. 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.
