Main risks

The risk assessment describes the risks that could jeopardise the achievement of our strategic objectives or our continuity. The risks are directly related to market developments, our market positioning and our business operations. Based on a benchmark, the risks Heijmans has identified are no different from those to which our industry peers are exposed. Appendix 11.6.10 provides further details on climate-related opportunities and risks and their relevance to Heijmans.

When determining the impact of the risks listed below, we distinguish between very low, low, medium and high.  

  • Impact very low: If the risk manifests itself, the impact on Heijmans’ strategy, objectives and image will be zero in both the short and long term.

  • Impact low: If the risk materialises, the impact on Heijmans’ strategy, objectives and image will be limited in the short term and zero in the long term.

  • Impact medium: If the risk materialises, the impact on Heijmans’ strategy, objectives and image will be limited in both the short and long term and still manageable if appropriate control measures are taken.

  • Impact high: If the risk manifests itself, the impact on Heijmans’ strategy, objectives and image could be significant in both the short and long term and immediate control measures are necessary.
