The goal of KONE’s internal control system is to ensure that the Group’s operations are efficient and profitable, that its business risk management is adequate and appropriate, and that the information created is reliable. The control system also makes it possible to oversee that the determined operating principles, given instructions and possible related party transactions are followed.
The Board’s Audit Committee monitors the functioning of the internal control process. The Corporation has an Internal Audit Department, which is separate from the management. The Head of Internal Audit reports to the Chairman of the Board. The Internal Audit Department is responsible for auditing both the internal control system and the management of business risks. It reports its findings to the Audit Committee.
