The company continually strives to provide the greatest benefit shareholders and stakeholders. However, in its business practice, the uncertainty that comes from internal and external factors may affect the achievement of company’s goal. The uncertainty factors are greater due to faster and more complex business climate. The uncertainty factors are unavoidable business risk, yet should be managed through a mechanism namely “risk management’.
A company that can manage its risk well is considered to have sensitive ability to detect risk, has the flexibility to respond risk and ensure its resource capacity to perform action in minimizing risks, whereas those that are unable to well-manage their risks will waste their resources and time, thus lead to unattainable company’s goal.
As one of the pillars of GCG implementation, risk management plays an important role in providing reasonable and useful confidence for the continuity and improvement of the Company's business amid the uncertainty of the business environment.
Implementation of risk management in all business activities undertaken by the Company is always based on the risk that is controlled optimally, so it is expected not to cause impairment to the company. In some cases, efforts are made to exploit risks into opportunities that can increase corporate profits. Pupuk Kaltim has a risk management guideline which serves as a guidance for Pupuk Kaltim to implement risk management and is expected to provide an understanding for all employees regarding the substance of the Risk Management Policy set by the Board of Directors as a reference for the implementation of risk management for all work units. In implementing risk management, one must pay attention to risk characteristics and the way to manage them.
