ECIIA and EIRG (European Institute Research Group) hosted a webinar on climate change, biodiversity and environmental sustainability on February 7. The 2024 edition of Risk in Focus (RiF) highlighted climate change, biodiversity, and environmental sustainability as the 3rd biggest risk organisations will face by 2027.
In Europe, the regulation on this topic is evolving quickly (CSRD, CSDDD, ESRS,….) and internal auditors have to play an important role in safeguarding businesses by addressing climate change, biodiversity, and environmental sustainability risks—critical for financial resilience and maintaining stakeholder trust. Proactive sustainable risk management not only protects against threats but positions companies to thrive in a sustainable future. #InternalAudit #SustainabilityRisk.
