Go-Ahead · Integrated Report 2017 · Risks and opportunities
The risk discussion in Go-Ahead’s 2017 Annual Report is concise in nature but communicates detailed information on a number of aspects of risk. Risks are initially plotted on a risk heat matrix before being discussed further in tables. As well as covering the potential impact, mitigating actions and changes in significance during the year in relation to each risk (4.25 of the <IR> Framework), the tables align with 4.23 which calls for insight into both the risks and opportunities that impact the organisation’s ability to create value. As this section uses succinct language and bullet points to communicate key points, congruence is also shown with 3E of the <IR> Framework which cites that integrated reports should include sufficient context to understand key discussions without burdening readers with less relevant information.
