Risk Management and Control System

In our view, the responsible handling of risks is an element of good corporate governance. Fresenius has a systematic risk management and control system that allows the Management Board to make early identifications of risks and market trends and to react promptly to relevant changes in our risk profile. Our risk management and control system and efficiently designed processes help to enhance the Company’s performance. Our risk management is reviewed as part of the annual audit of the financial statements. The control system is regularly reviewed by the Management Board and the Internal Audit division. Further information can be found in Management Report.

The Internal Audit division supports the Management Board as an independent function outside the Company’s day-to-day operations. The division assesses internal processes from an objective viewpoint and with the necessary distance. Our goal is to create added value for Fresenius, and thus to help achieve organizational goals through improved internal controls, optimized business processes, cost reduction, and efficiency increases, as well as the prevention of corruption.

Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co. KGaA has its own internal risk management and control system.
