Removing Blind Spots: How corporate leaders can get ahead of emerging ESG risks

The current global crisis is shedding a spotlight the financial, reputational and legal consequences of not being in control of ESG issues. CFOs in particular have an expanded role to play, as they need to account for the financial impacts of risks presented by climate change, pandemics, and more, and must consider different scenarios to ensure viability in the short- and long-term.

One can’t fully understand business risk without understanding the ESG factors that give rise to that risk, and the business leaders of tomorrow are coming to terms with this. They’re doubling down on removing blind spots at C-suite and board level. Effective risk management, however, depends on data-driven approaches that allow us to monitor the external landscape and focus on the risks that matter. 

Join this session to learn how business leaders can equip themselves with more proactive approaches to monitoring external risks, and how technology helps bring unknown business risks into the light and remove blindspots at boardroom level.

On this occasion, a student from Fordham Business School will present insights on how they used Datamaran’s data-driven approach in their project on “21st Century Risks,” and discuss these insights with a corporate representative.
