MANAGING YOUR ESG RISK EXPOSURE AND HARNESSING OPPORTUNITIES
The increasing focus on corporate purpose, accountability and operational resilience has continued to drive environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters up the corporate agenda.
While such issues may have historically been viewed as dilutive to financial value, there is a growing acknowledgement that sustainable business practices are not only essential from a risk management perspective, they are also often accretive.
Risk exposure differs from business to business, but common risks include issues relating to: climate change, anti-bribery and corruption and other forms of corporate crime, underpayments and ‘wage theft’ allegations, human rights and modern slavery in supply chains, sexual harassment and bullying allegations, workplace culture, tax avoidance and more.
We help businesses understand and implement processes to better manage ESG risk exposure and make the most of opportunities, by bringing together deep subject-matter expertise and best-in-class market knowledge across the ESG landscape, including in relation to governance, human rights, climate and communities.
