IRIS was delighted to join the RIMS ERM conference this month. RIMS ERM is always a premier enterprise risk management (ERM) event but this year it was extra special as it bought hundreds of people from the risk management community together for the first time since 2019.
The 2021 event was held at the New York Hilton from November 11–12 and many sessions were also streamed live to allow those that could not travel to participate in the event. The focus was “ERM in an ESG World” and featured valuable interaction with experienced speakers, relevant and practical presentations, and knowledge-sharing opportunities with peers. Companies are under increased scrutiny from stakeholders to take positions on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues such as COVID-19, diversity, equality, and climate change. Inaction or ambiguity can lead to dire consequences such as financial or reputational damage. As businesses continue to face ESG challenges it’s imperative that risk professionals begin incorporating an ESG framework into their ERM programs and the RIMS conference equipped delegates with new strategies to take their risk management program to the next level.
We will be discussing the topics raised during the conference in future posts but if you wish to talk about your ERM or ESG issues, contact us today for more information.
