Internal Audit, directly subordinated to the Board, is an audit function independent of the Group Executive Committee, which reports directly to the Board. Its purpose is to review and evaluate efficiency, governance, risk management and control in the Group. The function works proactively to propose improvements to internal control. Reviews are summarised quarterly in reports to the Board, the Audit Committee, the CEO and the external Auditor.
All auditing activities in the Group are coordinated, i.e. reviews are planned, implemented and reported using the same approaches and methods.
