ROADIS's biggest risk would be not taking risks
Javier Álvarez

Javier has a multi-faceted role. On the one hand, he organises the identification of risks that might prevent the company from reaching its financial and non-financial targets, also identifying options for avoiding these threats. In other words, what can go wrong and what we can to do prevent it. Another role of him is to check that these controls designed by business managers work as they should. If he realises that something is not functioning well, he suggests a solution. Javier also looks for efficient ways to transfer some of the risks which ROADIS encounters to the insurance market, to the extent that this is possible. Finally, he collaborates with other areas to encourage and ensure compliance with the ethical principles which we have self-imposed through our Code of Conduct.
