External risks can have meaningful impact on corporate success, whether or not you are in the water or energy business, for example. All companies must consider how to frame these large risks in terms of planning and growth. These issues marry the business impact of sustainability with good risk management practices. If part of the purpose of effective enterprise risk management (ERM) is to anticipate emerging risks and how they may impact reaching objectives, looking at a company that has taken a leadership role in water management can be eye-opening for every manager who needs to think about scarce resources.

In viewing this webcast, participants will:

  • Think about sustainability in business impact terms
  • Learn how to re-frame risks as opportunities
  • Understand the level of complexity of water risk and the implications

Who Should Attend: 
ERM leaders, sustainability executives, operating executives, and internal audit leaders
