Closing the Gap Between Risk and Sustainability
For many companies, sustainability-related risks are presenting rising operational and strategic risks. Yet there are often disconnects between sustainability and established financial modeling and enterprise risk management processes.
That represents a missed opportunity. It is clear that corporate sustainability must transform from nice-to-have efforts to boost company reputation and engage employees into a means to drive growth, manage risks and engage with financial markets.
This one-hour webcast will provide insight into how companies can effectively identify, assess, respond to and manage the strategic and operational risks and opportunities presented by sustainability-related issues in a changing business environment.
Among the things you’ll learn:
- The key issues for financial executives when assessing and developing a business case for sustainability-driven initiatives
- How to frame the corporate sustainability opportunities and risks in the language of the business and core corporate metrics.
- Why and how to create allies with finance and risk leaders inside the company
