The global risk landscape is changing

In this new era of risk management, Assurance 4.0, the global risk landscape is changing and there is growing recognition of the environmental, social and governance challenges faced by businesses, and society as a whole. Financial institutions and governments are introducing stricter regulations and legislation on ESG performance disclosure, encouraging companies to proactively take responsibility for the impact they have on people and the planet. Existing and forthcoming legislation has far reaching impacts, and consumers are making more informed choices about the brands they buy from, with sustainability commitments now a key decision driver.

By improving your ESG credentials and adopting best practices, you not only showcase your commitment to transparency but can benefit from successful reputation management, regulatory compliance, investment and improved consumer satisfaction.
