Enterprise Risk Management


Mabuhay Vinyl Corporation regularly assesses the various risks in all aspects of its operation and implements measures to prevent and mitigate such risks. These include but not limited to environmental, health and safety, and business risks.

Based on the objectives set forth by the company at the start of the year, each department assesses the risks in meeting their objectives and of the company as a whole. Risks are evaluated by doing the following:
  1. Determine the likelihood or probability of occurrence according to the defined criteria
  2. Determine the impact or consequence according to the criteria
  3. Determine risk value by multiplying the points from the likelihood or probability of occurrence with the impact or consequence
  4. Determine the risk level using the risk assessment matrix

In addition to the risk assessment matrix, the company’s risk management system is strengthened by having its Environmental Management System (EMS) for all production facilities certified with the ISO 14001 standard. An ISO 14001 certified EMS includes detailed assessment of environmental aspects, impacts, control procedures, and emergency preparedness and response.
