Lonsum has a comprehensive Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) framework that enables Lonsum to maintain vigilance and oversight of all its operating and functional units. The ERM framework comprises a set of systematic, integrated and coordinated risk management strategies. The framework is executed by the ERM Unit, which reports to the Executive Committee and an independent Audit Committee. The Unit ensures the timely and accurate identification, assessment, mitigation, reporting and monitoring of risks that can adversely impact Lonsum ability to achieve its business objectives. Our Code of Conduct and our whistle-blowing mechanism complement our ERM.
Since there are various risk issues common to ERM and sustainability management, the Head of the ERM Unit also reports on the effectiveness of sustainability strategies and compliance. “Risk owners” and business unit managers conduct quarterly assessment and reports of current and emerging risks, including sustainability risks. The ERM Unit analyses risk reports and proposes an action plan to address specific issues. Risk reports are then shared with the internal audit team, who validates the findings and actions taken.
Lonsum sustainability management information system uses real-time data from our SAP system to help track the Group's progress against its sustainability targets. The Group's sustainability progress and performance can be viewed online using a 'dashboard'. We also track the level of ISPO 'readiness' at our operations. This means we can make adjustments to any relevant plans during operations meetings in Jakarta which can then be approved by the Board.
The Sustainability Team works with the R&D team to improve agronomic practices and HCV area development. The Enterprise Risk Management Unit supports the team in matters relating to policy development, strategy formulation and issues resolution.
The Sustainability team reports to the CEO and prepares the agenda for the Sustainability Think Tank, comprising the Board members of the Group and its principal subsidiaries. The Sustainability Think Tank meets regularly to review the progress and direction of the Group's sustainability management efforts.
To lend greater focus to the different geographic areas, the Sustainability Team is sub-divided into regional teams, who report directly to the Group's Sustainability Coordinator in Jakarta.
