Risk appetite

Risk appetite can be defined as the extent to which deviations are deemed acceptable in achieving goals.

TenneT’s risk appetite has been set by the Executive Board for each of our strategic goals. In terms of the level of risk that we are willing to accept in relation to our strategic goals, we differentiate between the following categories: risk averse (low risk appetite), risk neutral (medium risk appetite) and risk-taking (high risk appetite). The following graph summarises risk appetite and trends on risks and opportunities assessed by the Executive Board. To learn more about specific strategic risks please refer to chapter our performance 2018.

To realise our 10-year investment portfolio, access to financing and the ability to attract and develop personnel are of the utmost importance. Without these essential resources we will not be able to achieve our strategic objectives as addressed above.
