GRI Expert Series - Aligning sustainability and risk management

GRI Expert Series - Aligning sustainability and risk management

For almost two decades now, the World Economic Forum has been conducting global risk survey among business leaders to determine the significant risks that can pose a negative impact for several countries and/or industries. Risks are viewed from the perspectives of impact and likelihood to explore concerns and raise awareness on the need for a multi-stakeholder approach to the mitigation of global risks. In 2020, everyone from around the world have experienced the largest devastation that has hit this century – the Covid-19 pandemic.

The pandemic was not unforeseen. In 2006, the Global Risks Report warned that a pandemic would be an acute threat across all industries globally. This year, as nations all over try to beat the pandemic, we are still confronted with the highest likelihood risks of extreme weather, climate action failure and human-led environmental damage; as well as digital power concentration, digital inequality and cyber security failure.

These looming, pervasive and persistent risks are interconnected and threatens the very existence not just of companies and organisations, but more importantly, the planet in general. These threats require global cooperation and societal cohesion. At the company-level, an effective, preemptive, and dynamic enterprise risk management is more relevant than ever,

The role of a risk manager therefore is no longer confined to managing traditional downside risks and regulatory expectations but progressively more into supporting the building of a sustainable business model. With our distinguished line up of guest speakers, this webinar will discuss the growing importance of integrating enterprise risk management and sustainability among companies and the pivotal role that risk managers play in shepherding organisations in this critical transformation process.
