Fractured supply chains, climate crises, geopolitical tensions, and economic uncertainty have altered the way businesses need to plan and operate. Identifying and managing critical risks is not only an essential business practice, but an imperative in this challenging environment. With this year’s Global Risks Report confirming that volatility in multiple domains is accelerating the risk of polycrises (interrelated environmental, geopolitical, and socioeconomic risks), never has it been more important to understand the risks impacting your business and strategy.

Enterprise risk management (ERM) can help organizations navigate these uncertain times, but for it to be most effective, it should be customized, quantitative, and truly embedded within key decision-making. As a structured, consistent, and continuous risk management process applied across an entire organization, ERM allows companies to better understand and address material risks. Corporate boards, ratings agencies, and regulatory bodies are among the key drivers for advancing ERM.

The implementation of ERM can facilitate better capital resource allocation decisions, increase operational efficiency, and enhance a company’s risk culture to support critical strategic, compliance, and governance initiatives. This includes strengthening an organization’s overall environmental, social, and governance (ESG) efforts by acting as an overarching management tool that helps bridge compliance and cultural awareness.
