Managing Risks

Managing Risks Protecting people and our business

Our Internal Audit team conducts in-depth risk assessment interviews annually with more than 50 of the company’s top executives and board members. A subset of about 20 people is interviewed quarterly to track changes in the company’s risk profile.

At the asset level, our Business Continuity Planning (BCP) team analyzes, prioritizes and helps to mitigate risks resulting from extreme weather, natural hazards and other external events. BCP relies on predictive and actual models from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and other agencies and GoogleEarth tracking tools to track and evaluate potential impacts to Gap Inc. facilities.

Our sustainability and sourcing functions assess and manage risks in our supply chain and develop country-specific approaches to evaluating and addressing risks. Learn more in the section on Improving Factory Working Conditions.
