The ECIIA hosted a webinar on “Climate change and environmental sustainability: how to tackle associated risks and harness opportunities?”.
Why should climate change and environmental sustainability be on your radar?
Environmental challenges are of a growing importance for all organisations. It is undeniable, this is now a strategic issue for all organisations encouraged by their internal and external stakeholders to become more resilient to environmental risks and to directly contribute to the environmental sustainability of the society. In fact, the risk is already proven: the consequences on businesses are measurable.
Are the organisations and the third line aware of the impacts of climate change? Has climate change risk been assessed? If yes, how can Internal Auditors move from identifying the risk to auditing it?
In this webinar, we have talked about it with authoritative guests such as:
- Bertrand Janus – Vice-Chair of the EFRAG Project Task Force on Climate Reporting Disclosures,
- Luca Preite – Internal Audit Manager Europe, North America, APAC, Russia, Nordics and MEAI at Pirelli
- Fred Ruoff – independent consultant in sustainability
- Nanthikesan Suppiramaniam – Lead Evaluation Officer at the Independent Office of Evaluation at IFAD
