The COVID-19 global health crisis has had an unprecedented impact on business and society across the globe. FERMA, ecoDa (through the GNDI) and ECIIA have carried out extensive international surveys to find out the impact of the Covid crisis on their respective professions and to help them navigate the challenges.
The pandemic has accelerated growing attention on ESG, sustainability and stakeholder value issues, but it is also true that the robustness of the governance mechanisms has clearly appeared as an essential element for the resilience of companies.
The April 19 webinar looked at the changes taking place for the three professions, but also discussed how they will need to work together more effectively. Successfully managing challenges requires definitely a new way of thinking about risks.
