What?

This webinar builds on concepts outlined by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) in their guidance Applying Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) to ESG-related risks. The guidance is designed to help organizations respond to the increasing prevalence and severity of ESG-related risks, ranging from the global risks such as the current pandemic, social equality and diversity and extreme weather events.

The session provides practical tips, guidance and insight to techniques to support effective risk assessment and prioritization based on learnings from business responses to the pandemic and drivers of effective disclosure and stakeholder management.

The session is conducted by Gordon Darling and colleagues from WBCSD’s Redefining Value program.
