Forethix co-chaired the GRI Roundtable on Sustainability & Risk Management 15.11.2018 - On 13th November 2018, Managing Partner Stéphanie Deltenre co-chaired the GRI Roundtable on Sustainability & Risk Management hosted by Euroclear in Brussels. Aimed to support the GRI Community in Benelux, the roundtable generated fruitful discussions around CSR risks disclosure. While 89% of companies agree that failure to manage sustainability risks could have significant impacts on a company’s financial performance, few companies do actually report on their CSR risks. Forethix shared with the participants best practices in terms of CSR risks disclosure and led an exercise aiming at identifying practices to further improve reporting on both direct and indirect CSR risks.
