GF JRG in Sissach (Switzerland) has been awarded the certificate "Highly Protected Risk" (HPR) for successfully implemented measures in the area of risk prevention. The certificate was presented by Axa Matrix Risk Consultants Germany and Georg Fischer Corporate Risk Management.

GF JRG is the first company to be awarded the HPR certificate as part of a pilot project being run by the insurance company Axa Corporate Solutions, which has been collaborating with GF in the field of fire, property and business interruption insurance since 2008. This award is an important evaluation vis-à-vis both internal and external stakeholders that documents successfully implemented risk prevention measures.

The ceremony took place in Sissach on 28 August and was attended by representatives of Axa Corporate Solutions and the Corporation. In future, all GF sites that meet the HPR criteria can apply for the certificate.

Axa Corporate Solutions did not previously award certificates for risk prevention and is currently looking into awarding such certificates to other customers.
