Risk Management

Our Board of Directors is the highest governance body at CMC and is responsible for appointing Senior Management. The Board and its Committees are responsible for monitoring and assessing significant risks to our business — including those related to ESG issues.  Click here for our complete corporate governance structure.

Sustainability has always been an integral component to CMC’s business strategy and culture. Our Risk Committee — composed of the members of our ELT — is responsible for defining, identifying and assessing the various risks facing CMC, formulating enterprise risk management policies and procedures and managing our risk exposures on a day-to-day basis. This includes monitoring, assessing and prioritizing potential ESG risks. Depending on the nature of the risk, a Board committee or the full Board then oversees the risk. The Risk committee meets regularly throughout the year and presents both an annual risk assessment and periodic updates as appropriate to the Board or the applicable Board committee. The Board assesses the risks and reviews risk mitigation options, which includes determining a response strategy and monitoring progress.
