Business Continuity Management
Business continuity management is one of the Company’s material issues owing to rapidly changing business environment, for example, natural catastrophes (e.g. floods, storms, and earthquakes) or man-made disasters (e.g. fires, protests and riots). It is one of the risks that can strike an organization and cripple business operations, and cause damage to the Company and involved stakeholders, for instance, the loss of ability to respond to customers’ needs and impacts on the Company’s financial status, reputation and credibility.
We are committed to providing the quality products and services with reliability in order to build sustainable value for our shareholders, customers, business partners, employees and communities. These are the part of our risk management and sustainable development policy. Business Continuity Management (BCM) helps manage risks to the smooth running and sustainable of business, by ensuring that the critical activities can be continued in the event of internal/external business interruption or disruptions such as man made or natural disaster, failure of utilities, fatal or serious injury, epidemic or pandemic, fire, flood and etc.
To fulfill such commitment, BCM will need to be fully integrated into our business processes and activities. Our BCM objectives are to recover critical business functions and key business systems and process within a suitable timeframe, and continue of products and/or service at the acceptable level. To accomplish these goals, we ensure the ability to respond risks by:
- Conducting business impact analysis (BIA) and risk assessment (RA)
- Providing cost-effective prevention, mitigation, response and recovery arrangements at the acceptable level
- Establishing , implementing and maintaining the Business Continuity Plan (BCP)
- Ensuring our BCM resources are of necessary competence and awareness
- Satisfying the applicable regulations, contracts and other requirements related to the BCM, including a conformity to ISO 22301:BCMS
- Continuously improving the effectiveness of our BC
BCM is a vital part of business protection programme and must be implemented and maintained to protect our organization, people, brand, reputation and benefit of stakeholders. It is the responsibility and accountability of each business unit to develop, implement, maintain and improve the BCM. This commitment will be achieved through collaboration, accountability and leadership in all levels of management, and it is a regular agenda for the executives to demonstrate the importance of this subject.
