Huntington Beach, California

Integrating Sustainability through Risk and Opportunity

Wednesday October 25, 4:15 pm-5:15 pm

Building sustainability considerations into enterprise risk management frameworks can help integrate sustainability into core business strategy and operations, but traditional risk approaches are often poorly equipped to deal with the longer term and more indirect challenges presented by issues such as climate change, human rights, and inclusive business. They can also give the impression that sustainability is only about reducing harm and not driving positive change. This conversation will explore key debates around the best way to integrate, understand, and measure the core environmental, social, and governance issues facing companies today. Participants will leave knowing how companies can better understand and incorporate their sustainability efforts and what the role of risk management looks like.
