Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Risk Chapter

The ESG Risk chapter demonstrates an organizational commitment to sustainability.



The ESG Risk Chapter is the first of its kind to be set up in RIMAS. 

The activities of the chapter will be organizing workshops, seminars to promote the concept of sustainability risk management, responsibility, and leadership among our members in the association. ESG Risk Management, and the benefits thereof, are better understood and many large companies now have personnel who are specially assigned sustainability risk management duties. Some companies in fact have established ESG risk management divisions in order to provide risk services to their clients.

There is a bright future for risk management practitioners as the benefits of sound ESG risk management strategies become increasingly recognized throughout the business community.
