Home Governance Risk management Sensitivity analysis

Sensitivity analysis

By making our dependencies transparent, we gain insight into the risks that are transferred within the chain. This enables Schiphol Group to anticipate chain reactions at an early stage.

We do this in various ways, for example by integrating sensitivity analyses for key value drivers in our Tactical Plan 2014-2016 and Strategic Plan 2013-2017. This helps us to determine the impact of key risks.

The table below outlines the sensitivity level for several of Schiphol Group's key value drivers, specifying their most important risk factors.
