About the course

This interactive learning opportunity provides a succinct and practical overview of the most topical components of the ESG risk management framework. Participants will explore how to integrate best practices into the wider enterprise risk framework by understanding regulatory drivers and identifying and managing emerging risks. 

Sessions focus on improving current practices including the role different departments, such as HR and compliance, have in implementation, specifically related to the social and governance aspects. Participants will deepen their understanding of ESG principles and their impact on risk identification, assessment, appetite and monitoring. Through group discussion, participants will analyse their experience with ESG integration, challenges they have faced and develop action plans for their organisations.
