Managing Risk in an Uncertain World

Future-proof your business and improve your decision making by building social and environmental factors into your risk management process

BACKGROUND

The challenge of uncertainty

To build a resilient business you need to understand how to manage your risks and make the most of your opportunities.

In a rapidly changing world, some of the biggest and most urgent threats that organizations face are from macro sustainability trends, such as climate change, extreme weather events and water scarcity.

Becoming resilient

The uncertainty around the nature, size and timing of such risks can be daunting. It takes finance professionals beyond traditional approaches to risk management and easily quantifiable risks.

But finance functions can’t afford to ignore these issues. The risks – and the rewards – are too great.

Developing a complete picture of how your organization affects and is affected by social and environmental trends offers commercial benefits. It will help you to estimate risks, address the needs of your stakeholders and build a resilient organization.

We have developed tools that will help you to be better equipped for the future, whatever it holds.
