    Enterprise Risk Management 

    Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is designed to identify enterprise-wide risks that pose a threat to Elanco operations, our strategy, and our business objectives.​ The ERM program is facilitated by the Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer with internal program oversight provided by the Elanco ERM Core Team comprised of cross-functional executive officers and senior leaders.  Enterprise risks are assessed and prioritized based on their impact to our strategy and objectives as well as their likelihood of occurrence. ​Mitigating action plans are developed by risk owners and sponsors for each enterprise risk.​ Reviews occur quarterly and annually to identify changes to current risks as well as new or emerging risks.​ The Elanco Executive Committee and Board of Directors provide oversight of enterprise risks, and they receive quarterly updates regarding progress on our mitigating action plans and annual updates regarding Elanco’s enterprise risk profile.
