Publicly-listed cement manufacturing firm Eagle Cement Corporation (Eagle Cement) posted a 44% dip in net income to P3.4 billion, down from P6.0 billion in 2019, after a strong start in 2020 was disrupted by the implementation of lockdown measures in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic that began in mid-March of the year.
Enterprise Risk Management
Eagle Cement Corporation, in line with the best practice in business processes, instills high priority on risk management across the company. This is evident on the company’s effort to educate their employees on risk concepts and theories, and encourages active participation of all departments when it comes to assessment of risks being faced by the company.
Even before the formation of the Business Risk Oversight Committee composed of the BODs, employees immersed themselves on risk awareness through series of orientation and activities such as preparation of HIRADCs for IMS purposes.
Currently, the Company has a solid risk management system when it comes to occupational and operations hazards, and it aims to strengthen the risk management system by fortifying the current risk set-up with disaster recovery and business continuity management plan.
