A practical approach to Risk Appetite and Tolerance   

Eskom’s approach to risk appetite and tolerance may not be flawless, however it is practical, tangible, understood, and applied. 
In the absence of a definitive risk appetite statement, multiple views will exist.  
A definitive risk appetite and tolerance will help in creating a framework for better decision making, reducing surprises and facilitating better achievement of objectives, whilst respecting stakeholders views. Understanding both appetite and tolerance levels with sufficient granularity will enable improved management of risks, quality of inputs into resilience processes and significant progress on the journey to becoming a risk intelligent and resilient organisation.
